Mauricio Pochettino has been repeatedly linked with leaving Tottenham Hotspur after a poor start to the 2019-20 campaign and the latest report claims Spurs have identified Julian Nagelsmann as his replacement – and Spurs fans are excited.
Spurs have managed just three league wins in 12 this season, drawing against Everton at Goodison Park before failing to beta newly-promoted side Sheffield United on Saturday afternoon at their new ground.
It is a difficult time for Pochettino. The pressure of winning a trophy is weighing the Argentine down. After years of overachieving without spending mass amounts of money, it looks like Spurs are in disarray – or showing their true colours.
Football FanCast have claimed that Tottenham have identified RB Leipzig’s highly-rated manager, who earned his golden reputation at Hoffenheim when he took over in 2015 – aged just 28. He took charge of 136 matches at Hoffenheim.
Joining the Bundesliga club with relegation staring his side in the face, he won seven of their remaining 14 league games to keep them afloat. The following season, he guided them into the Champions League.
Now, Nagelsmann is 32 years of age and has taken what was already an exciting outfit in Leipzig into one of the dark horses for the Champions League. They sit top of G, having beaten Zenit twice and Benfica – but lost to Lyon.
In his 17 games in charge of Leipzig this season, he has won 11 and overseen his side score 44 times. It has attracted the attention of Tottenham, who will turn to Nagelsmann if Pochettino leaves – as per the report. Spurs fans are excited.
