Tottenham Hotspur are ready to shift their focus back to Ajax boss Erik ten Hag after talks with Antonio Conte broke down.
After Jose Mourinho’s disastrous management spell ended in April, Daniel Levy has been looking to find a successor. Ten Hag has been mentioned as a potential candidate.Tottenham was thwarted in their attempt to sign Ten Hag at the end of April when Ajax triggered an extension in his contract, forcing the north Londoners to look elsewhere for their next manager. As soon as the deal seemed close, Conte pulled out of the deal.
Tottenham is now considering hiring Ten Hag, a striker from Ajax. Having developed Ajax’s young team and led them to their second league title under his guidance, the 51-year-old continues to impress onlookers in the Eredivisie.
The Dutch giants also had Ten Hag at the helm during their run to the Champions League semi-finals in 2019, when Spurs’ Lucas Moura scored a last-gasp winner to eliminate them.
The mentor’s standing as a ground breaking and energizing administrative possibility has stayed flawless, regardless of Ajax’s battles in Europe in the course of recent years, and it appears to be that Spurs accept he is the best man accessible to reignite their best four aspirations.
Mourinho’s archetype Mauricio Pochettino was likewise a solid top pick to return this late spring, with reports in England and France guaranteeing the Argentine discontent with his functioning conditions at current club Paris Saint-Germain.
Nonetheless, PSG is reluctant to deliver him from his agreement, which runs for one more year with the alternative to reach out for a further a year, implying that the arrangement hit a significant road obstruction right off the bat. The entirety of this has tossed Ten Hag back into the spotlight at that point, as Spurs expect to fix the harm brought about by Mourinho’s 18-month stretch at the club.
