Julian Nagelsmann is no longer in contention for the Tottenham Hotspur job, according to Sky Sports.
The club respect his ability and achievements, but he is not the man for them. The 35-year-old reportedly did not meet with Tottenham despite their interest.
The former TSG Hoffenheim manager has been the top candidate for two jobs and has not got them.
At one point, Nagelsmann was the front-runner to be Chelsea’s new manager.
The Blues sacked Graham Potter, and it appeared to be only a matter of time before he took the job.
However, Nagelsmann pulled out of the race due to reservations about Chelsea’s hiring process and long-term future.
Tottenham seemed to have a clear path to Nagelsmann, but he is not the man to lead their project.
Club chairman Daniel Levy will continue the club’s tedious process of hiring a new permanent manager.
Interim boss Ryan Mason is a contender for the permanent job. The 31-year-old has been in charge since they sacked Cristian Stellini.
Spurs came from two goals down to draw with Manchester United in his first game. They then lost against Liverpool before a 1-0 win over Crystal Palace.
It is unclear who is the favourite candidate in the race to be Tottenham’s next permanent manager.
Former boss and fan favourite Mauricio Pochettino is close to joining Chelsea as their boss, while Vincent Kompany has extended his contract with Burnley until 2028.
Other names linked with the Spurs vacancy include Roberto De Zerbi, Xabi Alonso, Ruben Amorim, Arne Slot and Ange Postecoglou.
