There are three managerial candidates who are in the running to become the next head coach of Tottenham Hotspur, according to Football Insider.

The report suggests that Celtic’s Ange Postecoglou, Sporting Lisbon’s Ruben Amorim and Luis Enrique, who is currently out of work are the trio who make up the shortlist to succeed Antonio Conte.

Tottenham have been without a permanent head coach since parting company with Conte at the end of March and the decision to temporarily appoint his assistant Cristian Stellini backfired after the club dropped down the table and results were also mixed under Ryan Mason which saw the North Londoners finish up in eighth place in the Premier League table.

Chairman Daniel Levy is reported to be taking his time over the appointment given the importance of getting it right after Nuno Espirito Santo, Jose Mourinho and Conte failed to end the club’s long wait for silverware.

Mourinho can somewhat feel harshly done by when it comes to silverware after Levy decided to sack him days before the Carabao Cup final against Manchester City and replaced with Ryan Mason.

After a disastrous end to the season, whoever comes in does not have to be preoccupied with any European football after the club failed to qualify for continental competitions for the first time in over a decade.

The next manager has something of the luxury of being able to prepare his players purely for domestic football and will have ample time on the training pitch with his squad, which needs to have a significant overhaul this summer.
