Next Tottenham manager odds: Conte odds-on to replace axed Nuno

| 30.10.2021

Contenders to be the next Tottenham manager

Antonio Conte is the odds-on favourite to replace Nuno Espirito Santo, who was sent packing by Tottenham on Monday morning following Saturday’s 3-0 home defeat by Manchester United.

The former Chelsea and Inter Milan manager is 1/20 to take over the vacant north London job.

Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “It feels like we’ve been here before, very recently, with Antonio Conte now being favourite to take over at Spurs after Nuno’s unsurprising sacking this morning.”

Here we assess the chances of the leading contenders to replace Nuno in the Spurs hotseat.

Antonio Conte

A fine tactician and forceful personality, the Italian has a knack of ending successful stints by falling out with those above him.

The 52-year-old’s first big managerial break came at Juventus, who he led to three Serie A titles.

Conte went on to mastermind Chelsea’s Premier League win in 2016-17 and the following season’s FA Cup success, before returning to management with Inter Milan and taking them to last season’s Serie A crown, but left in the summer.

Conte is reportedly in London to hold talks with the Spurs board, who could not convince him to take the job after talks broke down in the summer over the Italian’s demands.

Graham Potter

Potter, 11/2 in the next Tottenham manager odds, continues to receive praise for the job he has done at Brighton, who sit above Spurs in the Premier League table.

The former Ostersunds and Swansea boss has been linked with a move to a club with more resources than Brighton, but Spurs may struggle to convince Potter to leave his ongoing project on the south coast mid-season.

Paulo Fonseca

The former Roma boss was heavily linked with Spurs in the summer and his wife suggested on Instagram that the family were ready to move to London.

Despite that falling through, the north London club could go back for the Portuguese, who has also managed Shakhtar Donetsk.

Levy would have to move quickly, though, with the 48-year-old also linked with the vacant Newcastle job.

Fonseca is available at 10/1 to become the new manager at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Mauricio Pochettino

A Pochettino return was explored in the summer, but he remained with Paris St Germain who have since added Lionel Messi to their squad.

The man who led Spurs to their only Champions League final is highly unlikely to leave the French capital mid season, but if Levy and Paratici are patient and stay with a caretaker until the end of the campaign, they could look to secure an emotional reunion in time for next season.

Pochettino is 16/1 in the next Tottenham manager odds.
