Tottenham Hotspur is set to seek talks with Julian Nagelsmann. Julian is even said to have owned a Spurs replica shirt. Although it is not known how or why he came to support the club from his home country of Germany. One theory is that Nagelsmann was a big admirer of Tottenham under former head coach Mauricio Pochettino. He reportedly kept an eye on the team’s performances and results under the Argentine.
Bayern Munich have decided to replace Nagelsmann with former Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel. Tuchel had also been on Tottenham’s list of potential replacements for Antonio Conte. But the availability of Nagelsmann presents Tottenham with an opportunity to bring him to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. Nagelsmann was Tottenham’s first choice to replace Jose Mourinho in 2021. But a move never got off the ground as Bayern appointed him.
A new move for Nagelsmann would be popular with a large section of Spurs supporters. And this could spare chairman Daniel Levy from further criticism. Nagelsmann had been on a skiing holiday when news of Bayern’s plans to sack him emerged. And it is not clear whether or not he will now want a break before speaking to clubs or considering offers.
Conte was again absent from Tottenham training on Friday amid confusion over whether or not he will be required to return to England at all. Spurs are expected to agree Conte’s exit after his criticism of the squad. But players and staff have been left in the dark over Levy’s plans despite him making at least two visits to the training ground this week.
It remains to be seen whether or not the sudden availability of Nagelsmann speeds up the process. Or whether it slows it down if Levy is forced to change course. Ryan Mason and Cristian Stellini have been taking training in Conte’s absence during international week. But Levy will have to provide some clarity soon on who will be in charge of preparing the players for next weekend’s trip to Everton. Tottenham’s international players will start to return from duty with their respective countries on Monday. It is also when Conte would normally be back at the training ground.
Julian Nagelsmann reportedly talks about his view on Bayern Sacking amid Tottenham links
Julian Nagelsmann is reportedly ‘really disappointed’ with being sacked by Bayern Munich on Friday, despite the club only being one point off of the top spot in the Bundesliga. The news came as a shock to the German and supporters, though it may have been music to the ears of Tottenham.
Spurs are desperately looking for a successor for Antonio Conte after the Italian put his position into jeopardy last weekend by throwing his players under the bus to the media. The ex-Chelsea boss criticised the mindsets of his stars. And he suggested that the trophy drought in north London was deeply ingrained into the club. He aimed a few sly digs at the board as well.
According to reports of Fabrizio Romano, Nagelsmann was “shocked” by reports that indicated that he was set to be sacked on Thursday night. He was away on a skiing trip. The German was then fed the bad news on Friday morning. And was “really, really disappointed” to learn his fate. Nagelsmann’s sadness may therefore indicate that he is in no rush to embark on a new challenge in the short term. Also given that the summer is not drastically far away. And it may be a more logical time to weigh up his options. Thus, Spurs might be forced to be patient with their approach rather than slapping an offer on the table immediately.
