Spurs are yet to hire a new manager and it was confirmed recently that they’ve had an offer pegged back for Sevilla boss Julen Lopetegui too. The lack of a first-team boss at this point would naturally bring about doubts regarding who will take over their pre-season training.
Will Spurs have a new manager by the time the pre-season friendlies take place?
The journalist stated that the club’s sports science team is ready to do the role and even when a manager is in place, that is what generally happens early on.
He stated (5:16): “From what I’m told right now, the sports science staff at Hotspur Way are kind of ready if they have to lead the first couple of weeks of pre-season training.
“Some people will say – oh my god, how can you even start the pre-season without a head coach and all that. But ultimately from what I understand, that’s how it works whether there’s a head coach or not.”
TIF Thoughts on Spurs’ pre-season…
If the sports science teams generally take the first few days of pre-season training anyway, that fact shouldn’t bother too many Spurs fans. But as things stand, they don’t have a manager and they play Chelsea and Arsenal in pre-season fixtures in a little over a month.
They’d need a new manager in by that time or the next boss will have little time to prepare for the Premier League fixtures and the club may set off on the wrong foot in the upcoming campaign.
