Lots of Tottenham Hotspur fans have been lauding the idea of Julian Nagelsmann replacing Mauricio Pochettino, after Football FanCast revealed that Spurs Chairman Daniel Levy is keen on hiring the RB Leipzig boss.
Levy is not currently expected to call time on Pochettino’s tenure in North London despite the Argentine taking just one league win in nearly two months, which has left Spurs 14th in the Premier League standings and 11 points adrift of the top-four.
However, sources familiar with Tottenham’s recruitment believe that Levy is exploring what options are available should he have to take action, and is “all over” moving for Nagelsmann if things go “belly up” in North London.

Nagelsmann only joined Leipzig this summer following three years with TSG Hoffenheim, but has guided the Red Bull-owned outfit to second in the Bundesliga table and entered the international break above Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund.
Fans would seemingly love the idea of the 32-year-old being the next man in charge of Tottenham, going by some of the reactions shared online, with one supporter suggesting the German would be the ideal candidate to take the North Londoners to the next level.
Nagelsmann clinched the German U19 Bundesliga title with Hoffenheim’s youth side in 2013/14, and later helped the first-team achieve their best top-flight finish in 2017/18 while booking a place in the following term’s Champions League.
Here are some of the messages shared from Spurs fans reacting to the idea of Levy targeting Nagelsmann as a potential successor to Pochettino…
he is the best manager to take us to the next level. he is an upgraded pochettino, he’s the next pep.

Him and Ten Haag are the only two I would want to replace Poch if it had to happen.
