Everton boss and Dutch legend feature…
Read more Tottenham Hotspur news.
Paddy Power have rated these five manager’s as the favourites to replace Tim Sherwood at Tottenham in the summer, after it emerged that the English boss would likely be moved on come the end of the season.
5) Frank De Boer – Ajax – 20/1
The legendary Dutch defender is quietly becoming just as successful a manager as he was a player. He’s won three consecutive titles with Ajax, and could be ready to test his mettle in the world’s most exciting league very soon.
4) Roberto Martinez – 16/1
Currently at Everton, it seems unlikely the talented Spaniard would leave a club currently above Spurs in the league following such a promising debut season.
3) Jurgen Klinsmann – 14/1
The German once starred at White Hart Lane back in the 1990s, and is currently in charge of the US national side. He’s leaving after the World Cup though, and could be ready to make a romantic return.
2) Mauricio Pochettino – 9/1
The Argentine is establishing a reputation as a very good Premier League manager. He’s trusted a number of young English players with Southampton, and it looks certain that he’ll lead the side to a very comfortable top half finish.
1) Louis Van Gaal – 1/3
The stand out favourite for the next permanent Tottenham manager’s job, Van Gaal is leaving his post in charge of the Dutch national side after the World Cup. He’s enjoyed excellent managerial spells in charge of Ajax, Barcelona and Bayern Munich, and his appointment would likely appease Spurs fans.
