Things are not going to plan at Tottenham at the moment it is fair to say.
They were well beaten by Manchester United on the weekend, remain six points off the Champions League places and in 7th place in the Premier League. In addition, their captain and talisman Harry Kane’s future at the club has been in the press recently.
The club still have the Carabao Cup final to look forward to, but Jose Mourinho was not brought to the club to win the Carabao Cup despite their long wait for a trophy.
Italian publication Rai Sport are today reporting that Tottenham may know who they want to replace the Portuguese manager if they move him on, and the choice may seem a surprising one.

Former Napoli, Chelsea and Juventus manager Maurizio Sarri is the man suggested who could be next to sit in the Spurs dug-out.
Sarri has been out of work since the end of last season, when he parted ways with Juventus despite winning Serie A. His time in West London also saw him win the Europa League, the first major trophy of his career, and a top 3 finish in the Premier League and it wasn’t enough to earn a second season at the club. The fans just never brought into his style and despite his success, most were happy to see him move on.
Napoli may well also be in for their former manager this summer, but he may well relish the opportunity to have another crack at the Premier League.
