Tottenham Hotspur’s Search For A New Manager Continues As Talks With Julian Nagelsmann Stop


According to reports, former Bayern Munich boss Julian Nagelsmann will not be the next manager of Tottenham Hotspur.

Spurs, who are sixth in the Premier League, have been without a permanent manager since Antonio Conte was sacked in March.

Julian Nagelsmann, 35, who was sacked by Bundesliga champions Bayern in March, has been linked with the vacant managerial role.

However, there have been no advance talks and Tottenham Hotspur are not considering him for the managerial position.

Tottenham continue to search for a permanent replacement for Conte after interim manager Cristian Stellini was sacked in April and replaced by Ryan Mason.

He was born in 23 July 1987. He’s 35 years old.

Julian Nagelsmann’s Philosophy

Nagelsmann is recognised as one of the game’s most promising managerial talents, having taking charge of Hoffenheim aged 28 before moving to RB Lepizig, leading the club to the Champions League semi-finals.

He has been heavily influenced by the pressing philosophy of Ralf Rangnick, who was behind RB Leipzig recruiting him from Hoffenheim in 2019.

He then joined Bayern in 2021 and won the league title in his first season alongside two German Supercups.

Julian Nagelsmann always maintained that, “Thirty per cent of coaching is tactics, 70 per cent social competence. Every player is motivated by different things and needs to be addressed accordingly. 

“At this level, the quality of the players at your disposal will ensure that you play well within a good tactical set-up – if the psychological condition is right.”

He was previously the manager of Bayern Munich

Is Julian Nagelsmann married?

The German has been married to Verena Nagelsmann since 2018.

They have however been split since 2023 when it was revealed he was in a relationship with Lena Wurzenberger, a 30-year-old sports reporter for Germany’s biggest newspaper, Bild.

In March 2023, Wurzenberger resigned from her work at Bild, following Nagelsmann’s dismissal from his job at Bayern.

Julian Nagelsmann’s net worth

Julian Nagelsmann’s nickname 

He is nicknamed ‘Baby Mourinho.’ Nagelsmann was dubbed ‘Baby Mourinho’ after making early waves as a coach, having to give up playing while still a teenager due to injury.

Former players keen for Tottenham Hotspur to hire Nagelsmann 

Speaking on Radio 5 Live’s Friday Football Social, former Spurs and England goalkeeper Paul Robinson said: “Tottenham need to act and they need to act fast. Why wouldn’t they be interested in Nagelsmann? He is one of the most innovative, modern-thinking, modern-day coaches.

“If Spurs aren’t in the hunt for a manager like that it is worrying. I potentially think they have sounded his people out and they have gone ‘no, don’t waste your time’.”

Former West Ham United and Aston Villa captain Nigel Reo Coker added: “I think Nagelsmann has looked at this Tottenham situation and said it is not for me. I am too good, too focused, I want to be part of that greatness and Spurs doesn’t shout greatness right now.

“You have to think of a manager of his stature, do we even know what is happening with Harry Kane right now? For all the top teams we know how important it is to have a top-class striker. If he loses Harry Kane, who fills in those boots at Spurs?”

While it’s not entirely sure why Tottenham wouldn’t want to hire a kind of manager in Julian Nagelsmann, it has been perceived that Chairman Daniel Levy wants to sort out the Director of football vacancy following Paratici’s resignation.

A list of possible candidates have been drawn up;  Brighton manager Roberto de Zerbi has been approached by Tottenham and some reports linked Burnley manager and former Manchester City defender Vincent Kompany with the vacant managerial role.

I doubt they will go for the latter anymore has he’s just recently put pen to paper on a new contract.
