Italian club takes to Twitter hinting they've landed 'fantastic' manager reportedly on Spurs radar
Spurs are still in pursuit of a new manager following Jose Mourinho’s sacking in April.
Tottenham reportedly came close to landing Antonio Conte last week, but talks fell through.
Now, it looks as though Spurs have missed out on another leading Italian coach.
In May, Football Italia claimed Maurizio Sarri was in conversation with both Spurs and Arsenal.
On Monday, Il Messaggero claimed Lazio were becoming increasingly concerned that Sarri was holding out for the Spurs job.
The Italian reportedly expected to move to Roma in wake of Paulo Fonseca’s summer departure.
However, former Spurs boss Jose Mourinho took the Giallorossi reins instead.
But now, it looks as though Roma’s city rivals Lazio have got their man.
They took to Twitter on Wednesday afternoon with a series of cryptic messages.
All of these hint at Sarri being their new manager:
Spurs probably won’t be too disappointed – TBR View
While Sarri may have split opinion during his time at Chelsea, plenty of his peers rate him highly.
Mauricio Pochettino told Radio CRC – as quoted by Tuttomercatoweb – in 2018: “Sarri’s football is fantastic and the best to watch in Europe.
“When I can, I try not to miss out on a single Napoli game!”
That said, Sarri may not necessarily fit Tottenham’s ethos.
Daniel Levy is reportedly after an attack-minded coach eager to develop talent.
Meanwhile, “many (Chelsea) players weren’t happy with his methods” when Sarri was at the club, according to an article in The Athletic from 2019.
And “a lot of fans were bored by the style of play.”
