Tottenham have NINE manager targets but hunt for new boss hits rocks over 'concerns' about club | The Sun

TOTTENHAM have identified nine manager targets ahead of Antonio Conte's expected departure later this week.

The Italian is likely to be relieved of his duties after his astonishing attack on the North London club in his post-match press conference on Saturday.

Conte, 53, torched his relationship with his squad by slamming them as "selfish".

SunSport revealed that many Spurs stars want their manager sacked after his furious rant.

And they appear to be about to get their wish, with Tottenham drawing up a shortlist of potential replacements.

Ryan Mason is likely to step in for his second stint as caretaker boss until the end of the season, having taken charge of seven matches after Jose Mourinho's sacking in 2021.

According to the Telegraph, out of work trio Mauricio Pochettino, Thomas Tuchel and Luis Enrique are on Tottenham's radar.

They add that Spurs may struggle to attract some of their top candidates, however, due to reservations over how the club is being run.

Some potential new bosses are claimed to believe that Conte over-performed last year to clinch a spot in the top four – and that this season has been a more accurate depiction of the problems that lie within the squad.

There are also reservations regarding managing director Fabio Paratici's role within the club.
