Tottenham have reportedly already made contact with representatives of Athletic Bilbao manager Marcelino as a potential replacement for Jose Mourinho.
The 55-year-old has a good reputation thanks to his La Liga work and could now be in line for a Premier League stint following Mourinho’s sacking by Spurs this week.
According to The Athletic, Marcelino is one of the names on Tottenham’s roster and some contacts have already been made as they prepare to hire a long-term replacement for Mourinho.
Tottenham haven’t had the best season and it’s clear that a change in leadership was needed, although the timing for Mourinho’s sacking came as a surprise.
The north London side will face Manchester City in the Carabao Cup final this weekend and will have the inexperienced Ryan Mason in charge after being installed as interim manager.
Spurs fans will be wondering if this was the best time to part ways with Mourinho, but Marcelino would surely be seen as a good replacement.
