Some Tottenham fans underwhelmed after links with Roma boss Fonseca
Some Tottenham Hotspur fans were bemoaning the latest reports that linked the club with a move for soon-to-be departing AS Roma boss Paulo Fonseca.
According to Il Messaggero, Spurs have been in contact with the Portuguese boss over a move at the end of the season. However, the same source is also claiming that the north London outfit aren’t alone in their chase of the former Shakhtar Donetsk boss with Zenit St Petersburg and Benfica also having established initial contact.
It was announced a couple of weeks ago that the 48-year-old will leave his role as Roma boss at the end of the campaign and he’ll be replaced by former Lilywhites manager Jose Mourinho.
The serial winner’s record speaks for itself. Three league titles and four cup winner’s medals across both his home country and Ukraine show the young coach is a fairly talented manager.
He even managed to guide the Gillorossi to the Europa League semi-finals, and despite an 8-5 loss on aggregate, his Roma side showed off elements of his management skills.
Here are how some fans reacted to the links…
The bloke who got the sack so they could employ our latest failure? Oh, how exciting!🙄

My guy got sacked for a reason. The club must enjoy paying to destroy the club. How ironic
