Former Tottenham captain Graham Roberts has exclusively told Football FanCast that he doesn’t expect Hans-Dieter Flick to be the next Tottenham manager.
Flick recently announced that he’ll be leaving Bayern Munich at the end of the season and has been strongly linked with the Germany job, with Joachim Low stepping down after this summer’s European Championships.
But with Jose Mourinho leaving Tottenham last month, Flick’s name has been thrown about as a potential replacement in north London.
And reports believe Flick is interested in the vacancy despite the Germany job being on the table.
Flick has worked wonders with the German giants, leading them to the treble in his first season, and is on the verge of leading Munich to their ninth Bundesliga title on the bounce, which would be a remarkable seventh trophy during his time at the Allianz Arena.
Despite Flick’s impressive record with Bayern, Graham Roberts has highlighted the Germany role as his most likely next job when asked if he was the standout candidate available to Spurs.
He told Football FanCast:
“I would have thought so, but I think he will be Germany’s manager. I think he’s saying he wants to speak to Tottenham just to hurry up the Germany job.
“When he left, I think everybody knew we wanted Nagelsmann, and we didn’t act quickly enough, and he’s gone to Bayern. That is an upgrade.”
