Tottenham Hotspur have sacked Nuno Espirito Santo after 10 games in the Premier League. They are now looking for a replacement to help uplift the team. Here are the top five names that could replace the Portuguese at the Spurs bench.
Erik Ten Hag
The Ajax manager has performed very well for the Dutch club. He has been linked with a number of jobs in England and abroad. While he has a contract with Ajax, he is surely part of the shortlist that the board has drawn up.
The former Spurs player took over the club when Jose Mourinho was sacked last season. He has returned to the youth development role, but could be given another chance now that Spurs need a new face on the bench.
Tottenham Hotspur appointed an up-and-coming manager in Mauricio Pochettino. Graham Potter has achieved a great start to the season with the Seagulls. He could now move on a bigger project, with the London club beckoning.
There is a set of Tottenham Hotspur fans that think parting ways with Pochettino was a mistake. The Argentine is currently managing PSG, and has one of the most star-studded squads in the world. He tried to return to Spurs this summer, but the two parties failed to come to an agreement. Pochettino could try again now that the manager position is vacant.
The former Chelsea boss is being strongly linked with a return to London. He is open to the offer from Tottenham Hotspur and could be announced as the new manager soon. Conte was in talks over the summer as well, but there was no agreement back then. More positive talks have been held between him and Fabio Paratici this time around.
