Some Tottenham fans happy as Romano rules out ten Hag for manager role

Some Tottenham fans were feeling happy after Erik ten Hag was ruled out of the race for the manager job.

According to Fabrizio Romano, the Dutchman is no longer a candidate for the role. The Italian claims that the Ajax manager failed to fully convince the Spurs hierarchy over his credentials.

Ten Hag was linked with the role in the immediate aftermath of Jose Mourinho’s sacking.

However, the 51-year-old subsequently signed a contract extension to keep him at the club.

He’s proved incredibly successful at the Johan Cruijff ArenA, winning two league titles and two Dutch cups. Ten Hag also helped the side reach the semi-finals of the Champions League, where they lost to Spurs.

It feels like a missed opportunity for Spurs in their hunt for a new manager.
