Peter Crouch pinpoints Roberto De Zerbi to become next Tottenham boss

‘It’s an EMBARRASSMENT’: Peter Crouch questions his former club Tottenham’s struggles to find a manager as ‘no one seems to want it’ – and pinpoints Brighton boss Roberto De Zerbi as the man to take over

  • Peter Crouch saysTottenham should hire Roberto De Zerbi as their new manager 
  • It comes after several managers have turned down the chance to manage Spurs 
  • He also said his former club’s recruitment struggles were an ’embarrassment’ 

Peter Crouch has branded Tottenham’s struggles to find a new manager as an ’embarasment’. 

After parting ways with Antonio Conte in March before then sacking their interim manager Christian Stellini, the London side have failed to secure a new permanent manager. 

Spurs’ attempts to hire Feyenoord manager Arne Slot fell through, despite reports suggesting that he had ‘agreed to join the club’, but earlier this week signed a new deal at Feyenoord after he reportedly snubbed the club.

Former Tottenham defender Roman Vega also criticised the club this week, while suggesting that the word in the technical football world was that top managers were ‘staying away from the vacancy’ as plans to appoint Julian Nagelsmann also fell through, to much disappointment to the Spurs faithful.   

And former striker, Crouch, has had his say on their recruitment difficulties, expressing his bewilderment over why such a big club like Tottenham have not been able to attract a new manager.

It comes as Daniel Levy sacked both Antonio Conte and Christian Stellini this season and is looking for a new coach to take over at the club

‘It’s a really difficult one, Crouch said. ‘They’ve had so many people in the running and then ruling themselves out, it’s become a little bit of an embarrassment to Tottenham.

‘When you think of how big the club is and the training facilities, the ground, the players and no one seems to want it.

‘There are some good candidates left, Ange Postecogolu looks to be the one at the moment but I would have thought it would be Roberto De Zerbi myself.’ 

Spurs are now pursuing Celtic manager Ange Postecoglou, with the Australian being the bookies favourite to take over at the London club. 

While interim boss Ryan Mason has put his name forward to stay on as the club’s permanent manager, Daniel Levy’s side are ‘strongly considering’ him for the vacancy.

But it appears, despite strong rumours linking him to the club, they are no closer to finding a new head coach. 

It’s been a disappointing season to Spurs who, after being touted as a side who can challenge for the top-four this year, finished eighth in the league after having lost 14 games this season.  

Mail Sport reported earlier today that Luis Enrique and Ruben Amorim were also both in the frame, while Graham Potter and De Zerbi are being considered too. 

Postecoglou has had his say on the rumours too, but wasn’t giving anything away of his plans next season, saying his focus remained on Celtic.

Arne Slot was heavily linked to become the next Tottenham manager but reportedly snubbed the club to stay at Feyenoord 

Julian Nagelsmann was also in the running to take over at the club but that move also fell through

It’s been a disappointing season for the club who will now finish eighth in the league 

‘I’m aware of it because everyone keeps asking me about it,’ he admitted. 

‘It’s happened in the past, I have been pretty clear it’s just not the way I think and work.

‘My priority right now is just making sure we have a special day on Saturday and we have a cup final coming up in a week’s time.

‘I’m not going to sit there and get distracted by things that are kind of fascinating for other people rather than myself.
