Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy not considering unemployed managers for vacant role
Tottenham’s search for a new manager following the dismissal of Tim Sherwood will not include any managers presently unemployed, according to BBC Sport.
Several names have been linked with the vacant hotseat since even before Sherwood’s dismissal, but the latest development would appear to rule out the likes of former Man Utd boss David Moyes and ex-Celtic chief Neil Lennon.
Mauricio Pochettino and Frank De Boer, however, seem to remain in the running as they are currently employed by Southampton and Ajax respectively. Both have been heavily linked with the job, with the latter being the primary name mooted for the role ahead of Sherwood’s exit earlier this month.
Spurs denied having made an approach for the former Netherlands international, but twin brother Ronald De Boer also weighed in on the situation by stating there had been interest from White Hart Lane.
Club chairman Daniel Levy, however, is not thought to be in any great rush to find Sherwood’s replacement, preferring to make the most of the summer break to evaluate developments elsewhere and ensure he finds the right man for the job.
