Tottenham will allegedly move to replace Jose Mourinho with Julian Nagelsmann if the Portuguese manager is unable to arrest the club’s slide and save his job.
After five defeats in six games, Mourinho is currently leading the Premier League sack race and the next 12 days are said to be critical in deciding whether or not he will stay as Tottenham manager next season.
In the Europa League on Wednesday, Tottenham first face Wolfsberger before league matches against Burnley, Fulham and Crystal Palace.
Nagelsmann, who is just 33 years old, is widely regarded as one of Europe’s best emerging coaches and has done a great job since taking over Leipzig, leading them to last season’s Champions League semi-finals and now driving Bayern Munich this term in the title chase, with his side currently just two points off the Bundesliga top spot.
The same report says that, while the next four games are seen as an opportunity to revive Tottenham’s season, Mourinho still retains the support of President Daniel Levy.
