The more Tottenham Hotspur’s hunt for a new boss drags on, the more likely it is that we’ll start hearing about names that come completely out of the left field. Take, for example, this rumor — In a mostly-opinion piece for the Telegraph (£), Sam Wallace tossed a new name into the ring today: departing Bayern Munich boss Hansi Flick. Read more Tottenham News here.
Hansi Flick, for example, is a goal for Spurs chairman Daniel Levy, and it’s easy to see why given Bayern Munich’s Champions League triumph last season and his part in Germany’s World Cup victory.
It gives a man credibility and gives the club hope that he is a trustworthy figure whose nomination will not be greeted with a tsunami of ridicule when it is shared on social media. Never mind the fact that he may not have even been considered until Bayern promoted him to the top job 18 months ago. It’s easy to find solace in what he portrays.
The Flick rumor appears in the form of the article. It describes Daniel Levy’s quest for a new boss with a high profile. Its most recent season has been a success.”
If you accept that, Tottenham’s pool of available managers would be drastically reduced.
For the record, after being strongly linked to the open Die Mannschaft spot vacated by Jogi Low, Flick has not made it official. Our mates at Bavarian Football Works pointed out some strange remarks. It seems to imply that his loyalty to the German job isn’t as strong as everybody believes.
However, this seems to be more of a case of wish casting than anything else. Although there would be some irony in naming Flick to Spurs. This is the man whose dismissal at Bayern tipped the first domino. Causing Spurs to lose out on Julian Nagelsmann. There doesn’t seem to be anything more than a faint expression of interest. To suggest that Flick is still interested in joining the club.
His presence in Wallace’s article seems to be based on facts. The facts that he is available and meets the standards of a “proven coach. With a high reputation and a recent season of success,” rather than any strong reporting.
Of course, it won’t deter the gossip mill from spinning. Even though a slew of journalists and ITK has been disseminating “information,” the reality is that we have no idea who Tottenham is interested in.
On this one, Daniel Levy seems to be holding his cards tight to his chest. And we won’t know until we have some good reporting that Tottenham is “in negotiations” with a candidate.
Is Flick a viable candidate? We are pretty confident he’ll be leading Die Mannschaft out.
