Nantes boss Claudio Ranieri in shock Tottenham link

Jack Kitson by Jack Kitson / 08 May 2018, 14:25

Former Premier League title winning manager Claudio Ranieri could be in the Tottenham dugout next season, according to reports from Presse Ocean.

The French publication states that Ranieri is set to leave current club Nantes at the end of the season, with Spurs his most likely destination.

Hold on...what?

It’s no secret that the Italian has fallen out with the Nantes president Waldemar Kita, and earlier this month even dared the club to sack him:

"It's normal for him to criticise. All the presidents criticise when you lose.

“So, if he's not happy there's only one thing left for him to do…”

(Quote: Leicester Mercury)

While a Nantes exit could be on the cards, it's difficult to envision Ranieri rocking up at Tottenham in the upcoming months.

However, speculation does continue to swirl surrounding Mauricio Pochettino’s future at the North London club.

There’s a growing possibility that the Argentine, who is the fourth longest-serving manager in the top-flight, could be heading back to Spain with Real Madrid, should the club decide to part ways with Zinedine Zidane in the summer.

Zidane is one game away from becoming the first manager in history to win three consecutive European Cups, and only the third boss to lift the famous trophy three times, after Bob Paisley and Carlo Ancelotti.

However, should Liverpool upset Los Blancos in the Champions League final, there’s every chance that the Spanish giants could then ruthlessly cut ties with Zidane, and then attempt to prize Pochettino away from Tottenham.

If this scenario does in fact pan out, then Spurs would then be forced to open up a new manager search for the first time in four years.

However, for now we think the rumours are gibberish.
