Tottenham can’t find a manager
Thus far, a number of high-profile names have been linked with the Spurs bench.
Atalanta’s Gian Piero Gasperini was linked with the job, but he squashed those rumours pretty quickly.
However, it appeared as though Spurs’ long search for a Mourinho replacement was at an end when it was reported on June 11th that former Roma boss Paulo Fonseca had agreed in principle to take over in north London.
Gattuso not joining Tottenham
However, incredibly, reports then emerged on Thursday that talks had broken down with Fonseca.
It was also claimed that Spurs would then attempt to now appoint Gennaro Gattuso.
Tottenham are NOT intentioned to cover the economic difference on fiscal side with Fonseca – he was set to sign after contract verbally agreed, it was done… but talks have now broken down. ❌⚪️ #THFC

Yet again though, on Friday morning, word has spread that Spurs will not be making Gattuso their boss.
As per The Athletic:
Tottenham’s protracted search for a new manager will continue after the north London club decided against appointing Gennaro Gattuso
The Athletic’s report also details the backlash Gattuso’s potential appointment had received from Spurs fans on social media.
This was in relation the historic comments allegedly made by the Italian about the role of women in football, same-sex marriage and racism:
