Tottenham Hotspur have begun their search for a fourth permanent manager in three years after sacking head coach Nuno Espirito Santo.
The rumor mill is in full swing again over in north London as Tottenham begin a search for their next manager.
Less than five months into his stint, Nuno Espirito Santo is already out of the hot seat. Spurs released a statement on Monday to confirm the dismissal of their head coach. The 3-0 home defeat to Manchester United on Saturday was the last straw for Daniel Levy.
So as the club chairman begins his search, Betfair has listed the current favorites to replace Nuno at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Who could be the next Tottenham manager?
Former Chelsea and Inter Milan boss Antonio Conte is the heavy favorite to become the next Tottenham manager. Odds for the 52-year-old Italian to take charge are priced at 1.13.
Leicester City coach Brendan Rodgers is in second place at the moment with odds of 15.0. Graham Potter, who coaches Brighton in the Premier League, is in joint-third place alongside Paulo Fonseca, Eddie Howe, and former Spurs interim boss Ryan Mason.
Note: Odds are correct at the time of writing but are susceptible to change.
|8.||Erik ten Hag||🇳🇱||21.0|
What does the media think?
The media, like the bookmakers, are convinced Conte will become the next Tottenham manager.
According to Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano, Conte is ready to accept an offer to coach Spurs. He is reportedly in the final stages of negotiations with Levy and the club’s sporting director, Fabio Paratici – who worked with him at Juventus.
Sky Sport Italia reporter Gianluca Di Marzio has added that the Italian is expected to arrive in London soon to complete talks with Spurs.

When is the club’s next game?
Spurs will face Dutch club Vitesse in a Europa Conference League match on Thursday at home. If Conte isn’t confirmed as the next Tottenham manager by then, Ryan Mason might take over as interim coach for a second time this year.
