Harry Redknapp has been sacked by Tottenham, but who will be the new manager at White Hart Lane?
There are a number of names floating around the rumour mill, and William Hill have Andre Villas-Boas as favourite, with David Moyes second favourite.
If you follow my twitter feed, then you’ll see that my tip as soon as the news broke was AVB or Capello (10/1).
I still stand by my predictions.
Although Moyes is one of the main men being tipped for the job, I really can’t see him taking it. Firstly, he’s too settled at Everton, and they’ll want a hefty sum of compensation, and secondly, he just isn’t the right man to take on Spurs.
Moyes and Spurs don’t fit together in my eyes.
He’s TOO established as the Everton boss. It’s like asking Fergie to become Arsenal manager, it just can’t happen.
AVB had a torrid time at Chelsea with the demanding powers that be above him dictating everything he did – as he’s probably done with every manager since Abramovich bought the club.
It’ll be his chance to show the Blues what they missed out on – although, they didn’t do too bad winning the Champions League with their now permanent Di Matteo as manager.
Capello wouldn’t be a bad Tottenham boss either.
In an ideal location: London.
Some ideal players: Modric, Van Der Vaart, Bale.
And maybe an ideal chief exec? That’s down to the preference of the manager.
Whoever gets the job, they’re inheriting a squad with a lot of belief, a big stadium and a very dedicated and loyal fan base – what’s going to stop anybody taking the job? Apart from the shallowness of money, obviously.
Whatever the decision, I think Spurs will miss Redknapp next season, and they might struggle to hit the hights that they achieved in the 2011/12 season.
