Julian Nagelsmann, the former Bayern Munich manager, might take over as Tottenham manager at the end of the season.
The 35-year-old German is the favorite pick up for the Spurs head coach role, which will go to detain by Christian Stellini until the end of May.
After Antonio Conte’s resignation yesterday, Stellini has taken over as interim manager of Tottenham Hotspur.
Bayern Munich fired Nagelsmann earlier this week.
Tottenham Hotspur are fourth in the Premier League table after 28 games.
Julian Nagelsmann Sacked by Bayern Munich…. Reasons why?
It’s not simply that the manager won the title in his first season and that bettors thought he may win the triple this season. Bayern is the betting favorite to win the German Cup (they’re in the quarterfinals), the Bundesliga (they’re one point behind the leaders), and the Champions League (they’re second behind Manchester City).
It’s not only that the club let the news slip earlier this week, and Nagelsmann learned about it through the media while skiing in Austria during the international break.
It’s not just that Bayern chairman Herbert Hainer had stated just four days earlier that Nagelsmann was the club’s “long-term” plan because he was “tactically and strategically excellent at the highest European level,” had made “clear progress” in the past 18 months, and that any skepticism about his coaching came from outside the team. Friday’s dismissal suggests that Hainer is either not entirely aware of what takes place within his club, or his nose has grown slightly longer.
Nagelsmann’s contract with Leipzig was set to end in 2023, therefore Bayern agreed to pay Leipzig a world-record compensation sum of €25 million ($27 million) in order for him to break it and join them two years early. Even among top coaches, a five-year deal is uncommon, much less for someone who is 33 years old, as Nagelsmann was at the time. His yearly compensation was reportedly €8 million, bringing the total to around €65 million.
