Prediction of Nagelsmann’s Spurs XI |

Jose Mourinho is coming under increasing pressure at Tottenham Hotspur and his recent antics have done themselves no favors at all.

According to the Telegraph’s Matt Law, the Spurs stars’ current crop is now losing patience with the Portuguese boss over his scathing criticism and suggestion that they cannot fight for the top 4.

During their troubled period in February, the same reporter implied that Mourinho was fighting for his future, so this will not have helped in the long run.

Should Levy replace Mourinho with Nagelsmann?






And in both columns there is an indication that Daniel Levy’s ultimate goal, to replace the one-time “Special One”, is RB Leipzig’s Colonel Julian Nagelsmann.

North Londoners have lost a whopping 15 points from their winning positions this season, faced an impossible task of qualifying for the Champions League and embarrassingly eliminated from both the FA Cup and Europa League.

It could all boil down to the Carabao Cup final with runaway Premier League leaders Man City, despite the fact that you’re not holding your breath in the form they’re in.

But what would Nagelsmann’s spurs look like? This current roster needs a thorough shift and the young, progressive gem could be the man who does just that – if supported in the transfer market …


Firstly, the 33-year-old’s preferred system seems to be a 3-4-3 system, with attacking full-backs being the source of creativity through the flanks, while the striker has the support of two center-forwards on top.

Many of Spurs’ current options would fit right here.

It is very likely that Sergio Reguilon will thrive on the left, much like ex-city flop Angelino, who has scored eight goals and seven assists in all competitions this season.

However, on the right it is clear that neither Serge Aurier nor Matt Doherty are cut out long term, allowing Levy to take a free-agent nosedive for Lucas Vazquez, who will be leaving Madrid for free this summer.

He has had success in a new wing-back role under Zidane and won’t cost Spurs a penny in transfer fees. That’s right in the chairman’s alley.

In the middle, ex-midfielder Eric Dier’s ball game should have him ahead of Toby Aldweireld, who could return to his homeland this summer, and Davinson Sanchez, who is far too disastrous to trust.

Joe Rodon could also play a role as he plays a huge role in Spurs’ future. They may be joined by one of Spurs’ key key defense targets in Milan Skriniar.

Alasdair Gold claims they are looking for a new leader for their backline and Skriniar is an excellent fit.

There are also doubts about the future of current skipper Hugo Lloris, and although English shot stopper Nick Pope has been linked, Levy could find a cheaper alternative at Wolfsburg Colossus Koen Casteels, which Nagelsmann would have seen firsthand in action in the last Bundesliga Seasons.

Similarly, Spurs’ chances of signing controversial # 1 target Marcel Sabitzer would be increased tenfold if his current boss made the move. He would be the perfect compliment to Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg in the middle as the fourth addition to the starting line-up.

If North Londoners can hold on to Harry Kane, then we can see Heung-min Son and the forgotten 24-year-old gem Dele Alli right behind him in a delicious front three.

The attacking midfield duo Dani Olmo and Emil Forsberg play this role with great effect.
