Ranking of the most likely candidates to replace Mourinho.

With the news of a new Super League competition formation hotting up, Jose Mourinho sacking struggled to capture the attention. However, Spurs will be in the market to find a new boss.

The managerial job at Tottenham doesn’t seem enticing, following the sacking of Pochettino and now Jose Mourinho. But who are the most suitable candidates to take over the reins from the Portuguese?

Here is the ranking of the most suitable candidates:

7.Rafa Benitez.

Ranking of the most likely candidates to replace Mourinho.

Rafa’s stock is fairly low after a year in China, but the Spaniard knows what he’s doing and there are few better placed to immediately galvanize them in their bid to make European competition.

There are huge question marks over whether Spurs are prepared to make an interim appointment with just a handful of games left, or whether Benitez would be keen to take a job he has little chance of landing in the long term.

6.Diego Simeone.

Atletico Madrid manager Diego Simeone is thought to be open to a new challenge next season and has indicated he would be interested in Tottenham if the job opened up.

The Argentine’s brand of management can toughen up the Spurs squad to a new level. Having spent ten years in Madrid, it’s also easy to see why he might be fancying a new challenge.

Simeone could essentially take his pick of jobs if he were to leave, so may not jump at the chance to manage Spurs. It would be a sign of intent from Levy, albeit another risky one given his volatile personality.

5.Max Allegri.

Max Allegri has been out of management for a period of two years now and has been heavily linked with a return to Juventus who parted ways with in 2019.

Allegri won five straight Serie A titles in Turin and he is one of the names on Spurs’ managerial option, and if Spur’s focus is still winning things in the short-term, then Allegri can be a good option. He is currently available for free which major plus point.

4.Nuno Espirito Santo.

Ranking of the most likely candidates to replace Mourinho.

The Wolves manager is one of the most exciting and tactically astute managers in the Premier League.

Despite a disappointing 2020/21 season, Wolves are now expected to compete for seventh which is an indication of his job with the team.

He may have ambitions of taking them even further, but you get the feeling the next step isn’t too far away for the 47-year-old. It could be argued Spurs aren’t too much of a step up from Wolves at present, but the chance to work with superior players and greater resources has its appeal.


3.Julian Nagelsmann.

Ranking of the most likely candidates to replace Mourinho.

RB Leipzig boss Nagelsmann is now 33 years and the youngest manager in Bundesliga history but he is doing a commendable job.

With only five seasons of management under his belt, he’s already led Hoffenheim from a relegation scrap into the Champions League and also turned RB Leipzig into genuine title contenders.

He has the midas touch, and if there is any real chance of Spurs landing him, they surely must go all in.

2.Steven Gerrard.

Ranking of the most likely candidates to replace Mourinho.

Taking the title away from Celtic was never going to be easy, but given time by Rangers, Gerrard has did it in style.

Their Glasgow rivals haven’t been many cops this season, but even at their best, they would have struggled to get close to a Rangers team who have shipped just 11 goals in 34 league games so far.

Gerrard would have to take some convincing to leave Rangers now. He wants a crack at the Champions League in Ibrox, and in reality, only the Liverpool job may be able to turn his head.

1.Brendan Rodgers.

Ranking of the most likely candidates to replace Mourinho.

Brenden is a high-performing manager with a history of winning trophies, but still rebuilding his reputation after failing to win the league with Liverpool.

Leicester will undoubtedly put up a fight if there is an approach from a Premier League rival. And given they may well be in the Champions League next season, they could approach negotiations from a strong position.

Spurs are the sort of club Rodgers will have to join one day if he wants to make it back to a truly elite level, however. If he could rebuild them into what they were under Mauricio Pochettino – and maybe take them a shade beyond that – then it benefits everyone.
