Who is leading the race to take over as Tottenham manager?

While the season isn’t quite over yet, many Tottenham Hotspur fans have already turned their attention towards the summer.

One reason for that is the transfer window but the other is down to the management situation. Ryan Mason has done an okay job since coming in as temporary boss in the wake of Jose Mourinho’s departure, but there are still plenty of questions surrounding who the next permanent gaffer will be.

Courtesy of Oddschecker, we can see who the bookies believe to be the real frontrunners.

Simone Inzaghi – 7/4

The Lazio boss has one Coppa Italia and two Supercoppa Italianas to his name during his stint with the club and while they’ve struggled for form this season, his ideology could suit Spurs quite nicely.

Scott Parker – 4/1

Could Fulham’s relegation lead to a new gig on the other side of London?

Parker made 50 appearances in a Spurs shirt and that connection has played a big part in him becoming such a frontrunner for the role.

Brendan Rodgers – 6/1

Given the fact he’s on the verge of a top four finish and a piece of silverware through the FA Cup final, the Brendan Rodgers link seems questionable.

Tottenham might be regarded as a “bigger club” than Leicester to some but right now, the Foxes are the ones who appear to be in the ascendancy under the fantastic leadership of the former Liverpool & Celtic man.

Graham Potter – 7/1

Brighton may not be world-beaters but Graham Potter has them playing a style reminiscent of top six contenders.

Despite some very unfortunate results this season, Potter has earned a ton of admirers amongst fans and pundits alike. At 7/1, he could be a savvy pick.

Nuno Espirito Santo – 14/1

From one defensive Portuguese manager to another?

Nuno Espirito Santo has worked wonders with Wolverhampton Wanderers from consecutive seventh place finishes to an FA Cup semi-final and the Europa League quarter-finals. However, there’s a popular opinion brewing in the Black Country that he tenure could be drawing to a close.
