Tottenham are interested in the possibility of bringing French national team manager Laurent Blanc as the replacement for Harry Redknapp, according to the Tottenham news website. Tottenham recently parted company with Harry Redknapp, whose four-year spell with the London club came to an end in the most acrimonious circumstances.
Tottenham finished the season in the fourth position for the second time in the last three seasons under Harry Redknapp, but they failed to qualify for the Champions League due to the success of Chelsea in the competition this season. However, differences between the manager Harry Redknapp and chairman Daniel Levy grew over the potential transfers for next season.
This has resulted in the exit of the former Portsmouth manager, who came to the club at a time when they were in the relegation zone. The search for a new manager continues for chairman Daniel Levy, who is thought to have many high profile managers on the shortlist. One of the managers who is extremely favourite for the job is the French national team manager Laurent Blanc, who is out of the contract after the end of Euro 2012. The former Bordeaux manager has already stated that he would like to return to club management after his stint with the national team. David Beckham has also been linked to a coaching role.
“It’s always gratifying when big clubs are interested in you. I can sign elsewhere, before or during the Euros. I often hear it said that it’s the boss who decides whether or not to extend the contract of a player or a coach at the end of their contract, but people forget the employee can also decide for themselves. My intention is to carry on with the France team, but the fact remains, I have not extended my contract. If I get an exceptional offer, I could very well decide to leave for that club,” said Blanc in April.
