Lots of Tottenham fans have been fuming at a managerial news that emerged on social media.

Italian outlet Rai Sport’s reporter Ciro Venerato has spoken to Radio Kiss Kiss Napoli and he talked about Rino Gattuso (via CalcioNapoli24)

The journalist stated that while Gattuso will leave Napoli at the end of the campaign, and Juventus are also looking at the ex-Milan boss. Venerato also stated that even Tottenham have the Italian on their list of potential candidates to become the next manager.

Should Spurs consider Gattuso as an option?

Yes

Yes

No

Venerato stated that Spurs have been talking to Conte for a month now but they also like Gattuso, with Daniel Levy having watched the Partenopei and Gattuso closely. The Spurs CEO was left impressed by it.

This about Gattuso was relayed on Twitter by The Spurs Web. Many Tottenham fans were left fuming by it.

“I like Gattuso as a gutsy midfielder but has failed as a manager everywhere he’s been. If we’re failing with ‘top’ managers I feared what will happen with a poor manager!!

While Gattuso has managed prominent clubs like Napoli and Milan, the ex-Palermo boss doesn’t have too much experience of managing in the Champions League.

Starting with a current Tottenham star. How many PL goals has scored for Spurs?

Spurs are said to be looking for a manager who is young and professes a progressive brand of football. Gattuso happens to be a manager who is said to have to technical limitations but he looks to overcome that with tactical nous.

Another potential candidate in Graham Potter is young and professes an attacking brand of football. So the Englishman might a better option for Spurs.
