Tottenham Hotspur are experiencing a season of horror, highlighted by Sunday’s debacle at Newcastle. The London club’s management responded by recalling interim coach Cristiano Stellini.
The Roosters had high expectations for the current season. They were led from the bench by Antonio Conte and the club was very active in the transfer market.
Spurs wanted to end their fifteen-year long wait for any trophy at any cost and in the summer they managed to bring in six new faces to strengthen all the necessary positions.
These were not exactly small investments, led by Brazilian striker Richarlison, who cost just under 60 million euros. Another more costly reinforcement was midfielder Yves Bissouma for 30 million euros.
However, nothing went according to plan and another season of disruption and no success spelled the end of Antonio Conte’s reign in its wake.
The Italian coach did not feel that his ambitions matched those of all the players at the club and expressed his dissatisfaction in press conferences.
Tottenham were supposed to be under the management of Cristiano Stellini by the end of the current campaign. However, he didn’t stop Sunday’s debacle at Newcastle’s ground when his charges lost by a high score of 1: 6.
The north London club is thus in an interesting situation, as the next interim coach is the hitherto interim assistant, Ryan Mason.
This is not his first time in this position. He took on the same role back in 2021 after the departure of Jose Mourinho. He coached his first game in the domestic cup final, but the Roosters lost to Manchester City.
Tottenham are not in an easy position ahead of the end of the season. It is in fifth position in the table, six points behind fourth placed Manchester United and third placed Newcastle. However, both still have games to play and in Manchester’s case even two.
Aston Villa are breathing down their necks with two points behind them. Liverpool also have a game in hand and would equal the points if successful. We can’t leave out Brighton either, who have played even three games less than the Roosters.
The management led by Levy is now intensively looking for a coach to take the reins from the new season. According to earlier reports, Vincent Kompany should be the number one priority.
Whoever takes the bench will not have an easy job. The new coach will have to bring the team back together, establish a winning mentality and, above all, gain success in the form of winning the trophy.
