5 Potential Tottenham Replacements For Andre Villas-Boas

The pressure thrown onto Andre Villas-Boas seemed at an all-time high yesterday after Spurs fell to a 5-0 loss at home to Liverpool. The money spent in the summer has meant that patience is low around White Hart Lane and cracks are starting to show, but if he was to lose his job then who would replace him? Here are five who I think could do a job.

1) Fabio Capello

The former England manager is currently in charge of the Russian national team but might be tempted by the lure of club management. The intensity, the atmosphere and the more involvement are just three reasons why some managers prefer club football, but Capello might feel the need to clear his name in England.

The Italian was also at Spurs’ 5-0 loss to Liverpool too, according to the Metro.

2) Glenn Hoddle

Another England boss now in the shape of Hoddle, but this one has tight links with the club. Not only did he play for the north London side between 1975 and 1987, but he was also manager for two years back in the early 2000s.

It may be time the 56-year-old got back into the hot-seat.

3) Guus Hiddink

If Spurs should be after a gaffer with experience at the highest level but also a taste of success in the Premier League, then they could do much worse than former Chelsea, Real Madrid and Russia manager Hiddink.

The 67-year-old has almost a 60% win rate as a coach and has won a host of individual awards.

4) Jurgen Klinsmann

The 49-year-old scored 30 goals for the club in his 50 games during his debut season for the club and then nine in 15 when he returned in 1997, but he has since proved himself as a boss.

He’s managed Bayern Munich, as well the Germany national side and is currently in charge of the USA.

5) Michael Laudrup

Swansea are having a mixed time right now but there is a general feel around the place that the Dane is bound for better things. He lead Swansea to their first ever major trophy last season – the League Cup – and finished in their highest ever position – 9th in the Premier League.

He plays good football, too.
