Tim Sherwood has claimed that both Eddie Howe and Graham Potter would be good fits to be next Tottenham manager.
Spurs announced on Monday that they have sacked Jose Mourinho as their boss, with all attention now turning towards who will replace him on a permanent basis.
Ryan Mason has been named the interim head coach until the end of the season, which means he will lead his team out this Sunday at Wembley Stadium to face Manchester City in the Carabao Cup final.
Ex-Spurs boss Sherwood has put forward two names who may be the right fit for the north London club in the future.
Howe, who is currently out of work, is a highly-rated manager for what he achieved during an eight-year spell at Bournemouth before exiting them in 2020.
Meanwhile, Potter, who is the current boss at Premier League club Brighton, has earned plenty of praise for his work at the Amex Stadium.
There are similarities with both English managers, as they have shown they like to implement a style of football that is possession-based, as well as offensive.
“I think what the Tottenham fans are looking for is an up-and-coming manager. Young, up-and-coming, English manager,” Sherwood said, as quoted by DAZN Canada.
“I think Eddie [Howe] would be a good shout. I think Potter would be a good shout.”
Mourinho’s sacking on the same week as the League Cup final is mind blowing, but the team will now need to focus under interim boss Ryan Mason to focus on the football on the pitch.
It hardly came as a surprise to anyone that Mourinho didn’t set up his team to play the most dazzling football, albeit they did score regularly under him with the likes of Harry Kane and Heung-Min Son shining during his tenure.
But fans want someone in charge who matches the Spurs belief of playing brave football.
If Howe or Potter were to be considered, then it would be a huge shift in direction from the club’s hierarchy.
