Roberto Martinez Joins David Moyes In Running For Tottenham Vacancy

Following the confirmation of Harry Redknapp’s shock departure on Wednesday night the bookmakers have been sent into overload, with Roberto Martinez joining David Moyes as one of the leading candidates for the job. Moyes is currently the favourite in the Next Tottenham Manager Market and is also reportedly their number one target, while other contenders at this early stage include Fabio Capello, Andre Villas-Boas, Jurgen Klinsmann and Rafa Benitez.

Everton could now be heavily affected by Redknapp’s dismissal. A lack of funds at Everton could sway Moyes in favour of Spurs but at the moment he is currently working at Euro 2012. The Scot is the third longest serving manager in the Premier League but has long been linked with a move to one of the league’s top clubs. Meanwhile Martinez has also been touted as a possible replacement, although he recently revealed that he was staying at Wigan, although we all know how quickly things can change in football.

On Tuesday rumours emerged that Redknapp had quit Spurs, only for the 65-year-old to instantly deny this had happened. Redknapp, who had just one year left on his contract, then met with Spurs chairman Daniel Levy on Wednesday to discuss his future. Levy reportedly told Redknapp that the club had decided to move in a different direction and were therefore going to end his three-and-a-half-year tenure at White Hart Lane.

Redknapp’s shock departure will no doubt be disappointing for many Spurs supporters due to the impact he had during his time at the club. The former West Ham boss led Spurs to two top four league finishes, a League Cup Final and through to the last eight of the Champions League. However, Levy was understood to have been disappointed at their end of season collapse, which ultimately cost Spurs a place in next season’s Champions League.

Back in February the club were in third-place, 10 points ahead of Arsenal. A torrid run-in, which coincided with heavy speculation linking Redknapp to the England job, saw Spurs slip to fourth. They then faced an agonising wait to see if London rivals Chelsea would lose to Bayern Munich in the Champions League Final. The Blues went on to win on penalties, which meant that they would qualify for next season’s competition at the expense of Spurs. Redknapp recently revealed that he would have taken the England job (which went to Roy Hodgson) if he had been approach, which is also thought to have angered Levy.
