Julian Nagelsmann ‘won’t decide his next move until he takes a vacation’ after sacking Bayern Munich… with Tottenham now waiting anxiously in the hunt for Antonio Conte, with Real Madrid and Chelsea.
It is said that Julian Nagelsmann will not make any rash decisions about his future and will instead wait until he “comes to terms” with his sudden sacking as Bayern Munich manager.
The 35-year-old was surprisingly sacked by Bayern last Friday and is now one of the most sought-after coaches in Europe.
His immediate availability and the fact that he could be appointed without having to pay compensation makes him a very attractive prospect, and Tottenham want to start talks with Nagelsmann about possibly becoming their new manager following the sacking of Antonio Conte.
but, German newspaper Bild reported That Nagelsmann will be taking his time before charting his next professional move as he looks to move past his ‘painful’ departure from Bayern Munich.
The report goes on to claim that Nagelsmann wishes to analyze what went wrong in his 21 months at the club and let it sink in before moving on to a new location.
Julian Nagelsmann will take some time to consider his sacking before deciding on his future
Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy (right) made Nagelsmann his first goal to replace Antonio Conte (left), who was sacked as Tottenham manager on Sunday.
Tottenham would prefer to include Nagelsmann sooner rather than later, but he realizes that the summer start will suit both parties, given the way former Conte assistant Christian Stellini has given him the reins in the last 10 matches.
However, Tottenham face an anxious wait while Nagelsmann decides his future as there is plenty of interest from the likes of Real Madrid and Chelsea.
Joining Real Madrid, a team already set up for immediate success, could suit Nagelsmann, but he has fans at Chelsea and would be interested if they decided to replace Graham Potter.
Improved results have eased the pressure on Potter after a largely disappointing first season, but a dip in form before the end of the season could leave Chelsea’s owners with a decision to make.
Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy wants to balance his chances before turning his attention to other candidates to replace Conte, who left the club on Sunday night.
Tottenham have compiled a list of substitute candidates with Luis Enrique, Roberto De Zerbi, Marco Silva, Steve Cooper, Thomas Frank, Sergio Conceicao, Oliver Glasner and Ange Postecoglou among the names in the box.
However, there is also interest from Chelsea if they decide to sack Graham Potter (left) while Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti (right) has been linked with the Brazil job this summer.
Mauricio Pochettino’s return would satisfy sections of the fanbase but his appointment is considered questionable.
Stellini and Ryan Mason have been appointed on temporary assignment with Tottenham, and their caretaker reigns have already dealt a first blow as right-back Emerson Royal is found to require surgery after injuring his knee while playing for Brazil.
Conte posted on Instagram: ‘I would like to thank everyone at Tottenham who appreciated and shared my passion and way of living football as a coach.
A special thought to the fans who always showed me support, it was fun to hear them sing my name. Our journey together is over, I wish you all the best for the future.
