Nagelsmann to replace Mourinho?

RB Leipzig head coach Julian Nagelsmann can replace Jose Mourinho subject to the dismissal of the latter from Tottenham.

London's Tottenham have had a good start this season, but Harry Kane's injury and the Spurs' lack of tactical flexibility have led to a number of bad results. Jose Mourinho's team settled in the middle of the Premier League standings, dropped out of the FA Cup, but at the same time reached the League Cup final and continue to fight in the Europa League, having reached the tournament round of 16.

However, in the league, Tottenham have already had eight defeats and six draws with ten wins. And in recent matches the Spurs have beaten only West Bromwich from the 19th place in the Premier League, losing to Brighton, Chelsea, Manchester City and West Ham.

The chair under Jose Mourinho really wobbles. In addition, the discord began in the team. There are already rumors that a number of players are disappointed in the coach while he himself insists that everything is in order.

Also, nothing is known about the sum he will receive upon dismissal. This fact remains definitive in the decision of not the most generous president Daniel Levy about the future of the Portuguese coach. Despite this, The Telegraph claims that the main candidate to replace the Special one is Julian Nagelsmann from RB Leipzig.

The German specialist has proven himself well and, it seems to us, moving to the Premier League is a logical continuation of his career. If after Hoffenheim it was too early for him to leave for one of the most competitive leagues, now, after reaching the Champions League semi-finals, it is clearly time for him to try his hand.

But we don't think Tottenham will say goodbye to Mourinho in the middle of the season. And the fact that Nagelsmann will leave Leipzig before the end of the league season even more so. He has a chance to compete with Bayern Munich for the title, since the Munich players are only two points ahead.

For Tottenham, Nagelsmann is a great option, because his game formation is similar to the vertical football to which Jose Mourinho lowered the team. The arrival of the Portuguese has weakened the team after the dismissal of Mauricio Pochettino in attacking potential, but Nagelsmann has every opportunity to correct this if given the chance.
