Tottenham has announced its decision to hire Feyenoord boss Arne Slott as the head coach. The Dutchman led Feyenoord to their second Eredivisie title of the century. While Slott has met the club for negotiations, he has only extended his contract at Feyenoord. Slott has expressed interest in Tottenham, but he will remain at Feyenoord, as he is expected to sign a new deal.
Spurs were determined to sign Slott as he won the Eredivisie title with Feyenoord this season. However, Tottenham does not speak to Slott or Feyenoord directly, and they do not publicly comment on employees of other football clubs. Tottenham’s search for a manager will be explained in response to having entrusted Feyenoord.
Senior Sky Sports News reporter Rob Dorsett says that Tottenham is disappointed with the latest outcome. However, they were never specific about their approach to Slott, and it never reached the stage of discussion. Tottenham took 76 days to get the job when Nuno Espirito Santo was appointed, and it has been exactly 60 days since Antonio Conte was sacked as Tottenham’s manager.
Tottenham’s interim manager Ryan Mason believes he will be ready to hit the plate for Spurs if given a full-time job. However, the 31-year-old, who is in his second stint as the club’s caretaker, has won just one of his last five games. Mason says, “I feel ready to help this club at this moment, and I have absolute confidence in my team.” While the decision ultimately lies with the club, he is confident that he can make an impact in this short period of time.
