Tottenham ‘top contender’ fights four alternatives for manager’s job as ‘concerns’ at Feyenoord grow
According to reports, Dutch outfit Feyenoord are ‘increasingly concerned’ that Arne Slot will leave to join Tottenham Hotspur this summer.
Spurs have been without a permanent manager since Antonio Conte left the club at the start of March.
Ryan Mason is currently the club’s interim head coach but it is expected that he will be replaced before next season.
Julian Nagelsmann and Luis Enrique have been linked with the Premier League club in recent weeks but Slot has since emerged as the leading contender to replace Conte.
Slot has done a superb job since replacing joining Feyenoord before the 2021/22 campaign. He has won 64 of his 99 games in charge and he has helped the Dutch side lift the Eredivisie this season.
Sky Sports are reporting that ‘Feyenoord are increasingly concerned they are going to lose manager Slot to Tottenham’. The 44-year-old is among their ‘top contenders’ and the Dutch outfit are ‘resigned to losing him’.
Feyenoord are prepared to ‘double’ Slot’s wages to keep him beyond this summer, while ‘Spurs are also interested in Celtic boss Ange Postecoglu, Brighton manager Roberto De Zerbi and Fulham boss Marco Silva, while Brentford’s Thomas Frank has admirers at the club too’.
Ex-Tottenham player Jamie O’Hara recently encouraged his former club to make a move for Postecoglu.
“Tottenham should go after Postecoglu in the summer,” O’Hara told Grosvenor Sport. “He’s brilliant and Tottenham are a huge football club. If he got offered the job, there is no way he is turning it down – how could you?

“If he had the opportunity to manage Tottenham in the Europa League or Europa Conference League, or manage Celtic in the Champions League, you’re taking Tottenham. Celtic will get pumped in the Champions League and will be out in the group stages, then they’ll walk the league.
“Celtic are a huge football club but for Postecoglou’s career, there is no way in a million years he would turn Spurs down.”
On Daniel Levy, O’Hara added: “Daniel Levy is unbelievable for Spurs as a business manager. What he’s done to Tottenham Hotspur Football Club as a franchise is incredible. The stadium that he’s built, the NFL games being played there, the amount of revenue he’s made for Tottenham makes him a genius – one of the best in the business.
“Yet although he’s a brilliant businessman, for Levy to run a football club, for success and to win trophies, he’s horrendous. It’s been 20 years and Tottenham have hardly won anything.”
