Ex-Manchester United manager Ralph Rangnick has encouraged Julian Nagelsmann to take the Tottenham Hotspur job this summer.
Tottenham are currently without a manager after first sacking Antonio Conte last month and then firing his assistant Cristian Stellini as interim head coach earlier this week.
According to The Guardian’s David Hytner, Nagelsmann is set to be offered the Tottenham hot seat by Chairman Daniel Levy this summer as the club looks for a fresh start after a dismal season. And ex-Man United manager Rangnick, who is now the manager of the Austrian national team, called Tottenham “an exciting club in many ways”.

Nagelsmann and Rangnick worked together at RB Leipzig, with Rangnick being Red Bull’s head of sport and development during Rangnick’s tenure as manager of RB Leipzig. Nagelsmann was surprisingly sacked by Bayern Munich and has been recommended by Rangnick, who believes the German will need to operate with a sporting director if he takes the job at Spurs, after the resignation of Italian Fabio Paratici last week.
