Report: Wolves to challenge Spurs for Paulo Fonseca
Spurs could miss out on yet another potential manager, with Wolves apparently keen on Paulo Fonseca as Nuno Santo’s successor.
The Mirror claims that Wolves have identified Fonseca as a potential replacement for Santo. The 48-year-old is set to be out of work, with Jose Mourinho to replace him in the managerial hotseat at Roma.
Fonseca, though, has also been named as someone Spurs could be interested in. Ian McGarry told the Transfer Window Podcast recently that the 48-year-old had been offered to both Spurs and Celtic.
But it looks like – onec again – Daniel Levy won’t have a free run at Fonseca. Wolves are said to be eyeing up Fonseca, which could complete a coincidental circle between Wolves and Spurs, given that Nuno Santo was another initially linked with Tottenham.
Fonseca has experience in management, despite his relatively young age. He won three titles in the Ukraine with Shakthar Donetsk, after having a modest career as a player in Portugal.
TBR View: Spurs and manager merry-go-round continuing it seems
This hunt for a new Spurs manager is going to take more and more twists you feel. So many names are being linked with the Spurs job, that you feel it might take something out of the blue.
Wolves are obviously keen to move quickly for Fonseca here. Replacing Nuno Santo is a big call for the club, just like Daniel Levy’s call is for his own club.
Fonseca is a good coach. But whether he is quite ready for the Spurs job, remains to be seen.
