Tottenham fans have taken to social media to react to the latest update regarding RB Leipzig manager Julian Nagelsmann, who has been linked with a move to Spurs for some time.
According to SPORT BILD journalist Christian Falk, Leipzig have barred Nagelsmann from joining Bayern Munich at the end of the season as an attempt to stop the east German club from strengthening a league rival, with the report stating that the Bundesliga side will allow Tottenham to speak to the 33-year-old manager.
The Telegraph reported earlier in the year that the German coach was Tottenham’s top target should Jose Mourinho be sacked from the club, with Spurs currently five points off the top-four in the Premier League table and already out of Europe after losing to Dinamo Zagreb in the Round-of-16 of the UEFA Europa League.
Tottenham supporters on social media have been eager for Nagelsmann to join the club should Mourinho leave in the near future, and this latest update was met with widespread job and excitement from Spurs fans, who have a new-found confidence that the German manager could be hired with Bayern seemingly out of the picture.
Here’s what Spurs fans had to say on Twitter about the latest update on Nagelsmann…
