Jack Pitt-Brooke has told the View From the Lane that Tottenham Hotspur’s managerial shortlist has now been whittled down to just four names.
Tottenham have been looking for Jose Mourinho’s replacement for weeks now, but have been unable to make a quick appointment.
Daniel Levy appears to be determined to get his next manager right, and it certainly taking his time over the process.
Spurs have assessed numerous options and been linked with multiple different candidates.
But it seems that Tottenham are finally zeroing in on their next manager.
And Pitt-Brooke has suggested that Ten Hag is now the most likely manager to land the Tottenham job.
“We’re getting down to the serious end of the process now. By the end of the week we should have a clearer idea of who it should be,” the Athletic journalist said.
“The shortlist is Erik ten Hag, Roberto Martinez, Ralph Ragnick and Graham Potter.
“I know Ten Hag signed that new contract at Ajax a few weeks ago, but I think he is probably the most likely of these four to get the job.”
The news is interesting is it was initially thought that Tottenham’s chances of landing Ten Hag were over when he penned a new contract at Ajax.
However, it seems that he remains a possibility for Spurs and he could be a potentially exciting addition.
Ten Hag, who has 244 career wins as a manager, has had great success at Ajax, both domestically and in European football, and they have played football in a very eye catching style, which could appeal after complaints about Jose Mourinho’s defensive tactics.
