Kane can absolutely win a trophy at Spurs, says Levy
Tottenham have been told to replace interim manager Cristian Stellini ‘right now’ by Liverpool icon Jamie Carragher. Stellini’s Spurs were thrashed 6-1 by Newcastle on Sunday and the club have been slammed for replacing Antonio Conte with the Italian’s former assistant until the end of the season.
Carragher wrote on Twitter: “Tottenham are a disgrace! How have they gone to a back four for the first time this season, with [Pedro] Porro, a full back that can’t defend, and [Ivan] Perisic who is a winger? Get a proper manager in right now, not Conte’s mate.”
With that in mind, Express Sports takes a look at some out-of-work managers who could take the reins immediately.
Former Spain and Barcelona boss Luis Enrique is a free man after talks with Chelsea seemingly fell apart. The 52-year-old is reported to have made too many demands to the Stamford Bridge hierarchy.
If Spurs want to adopt a more progressive style and develop their excellent young prospects without returning to Mauricio Pochettino, then Enrique could be their best bet.

Graham Potter could want a quick return to management to get over his disappointing Chelsea reign. The 47-year-old was sacked by the Blues earlier this month, throwing into disarray Spurs’s search for a new manager as they were now fishing in the same pond as their richer London rivals.
Potter remains an excellent head coach, evidenced by his work with Brighton and Swansea. Spurs could do a lot worse than appoint the Englishman.
If Spurs want more chaos, they should turn to Marcelo Bielsa. The Argentine has been linked with several jobs but has not returned to management since his sacking by Leeds over a year ago.
When he was linked with the Everton job in January, it was reported that the eccentric tactician had asked to take over the U21s until the end of the season while his coaching team oversaw the senior squad. Spurs are unlikely to accept such a demand, but a few years of Bielsa in North London would be fun.

A pragmatic coach with a reputation for developing young players, Brendan Rodgers fits the job specification at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. The Northern Irishman is fighting for his reputation after his Leicester team suffered a surprise slump and were heading for relegation before his sacking earlier this month.
With Spurs needing a major rebuild, Rodgers could see them as the perfect challenge to refuel his own career.
Like Enrique, Nagelsmann seems to be out of the race for the Chelsea job. The young German coach was the early favourite to replace Potter at Stamford Bridge but talks with the Blues board have apparently caused him to have doubts.
The 35-year-old could be better suited to Spurs, where he will be given time to rebuild the squad, develop players and try to improve the club’s form.
Spurs fans will probably not get their wish for a fairytale return for Mauricio Pochettino. The Argentine seems destined for the Chelsea hotseat, but Daniel Levy could attempt a late hijack if he really wants his former manager.
However, it seems the Spurs favourite is bound for Stamford Bridge in yet more bad news for the north London club’s fanbase.
