Spurs have had quite a few odd players over the last ten years, but can you remember them? Here is the first one, who is this former Tottenham man?

One of the topics that the Football.London reporter spent loads of time on was the next Tottenham Hotspur manager.

“Neither Sarri [nor] Conte fit the profile; they’re looking for someone that plays really progressive attacking, possession-based football, cutting edge techniques, all of this sort of stuff.”

Would you like to see Conte at Tottenham?

Yes, that would be brilliant

So, you can see why Spurs aren’t really looking to appoint the Italian, but one thing that cannot be denied is that he has had success pretty much everywhere he has been and given how long it has been since Spurs won a trophy, you would think he could be the man to end that drought.

However, if what Gold says is true, then we can’t see Conte taking over at the .
