Will it really be a variable?
While Feyenoord coach Arne Slot (44) is rapidly emerging as the next Tottenham head coach, assistant coach John the Wolf is drawing attention by first expressing his move forward. But it was a red flag. Coach Wolf said that even if Slott took over as Tottenham manager, he would not be with him.
He appeared on ‘NPO’ in the Netherlands and was asked about the future of director Slot. “We didn’t talk about it at all,” Wolf replied. “I once told them not to listen to the other clubs in the Netherlands.”
Coach Wolf said, “What would you do if coach Slot asked you to join him in moving to Tottenham?” He also made it clear that he would defend Feyenoord.
“Feyenoord is my club, it’s where I belong, it’s my home. I still get goosebumps every day when I pass the (Rotterdam) bridge,” emphasized Wolf. Having played as a center back for Feyenoord during his active career, he has been coaching Feyenoord since 2019.
Slott took the helm of Feyenoord in July 2021. Prior to Slott, Wolf had assisted Jaap Stam and Dick Advocaat.
Coach Slot led the regular league championship in six years with Coach Wolf this season. If coach Slot is shaken by Coach Wolf’s move, Chairman Daniel Levy will have to taste frustration again.
Following Burnley manager Vincent Kompany and former Bayern Munich manager Julian Nagelsmann, Bayer Leverkusen manager Xabi Alonso has been a candidate for Tottenham’s command post. But everyone turned away.스포츠토토
Coach Kompany, who promoted Burnley from the Championship to the English Premier League, renewed his contract. Coach Nagelsmann disappeared from the candidacy after demanding full authority over the recruitment of players. Manager Alonso also announced his stay.
Slott has two more years left on his contract with Feyenoord. If Tottenham recruits manager Slot, he must pay 6 million pounds (about 10 billion won) in compensation to Feyenoord.
