Speculation regarding the managerial position at Tottenham Hotspur continues to do the rounds.
Antonio Conte ruffled some feathers at Spurs after the Southampton draw last weekend, to put it mildly.
The Italian called a number of his stars “selfish” and claimed they are afraid of playing under pressure.
Although Conte remains at the Tottenham helm, it remains to be seen how long he’ll stay put.
Plenty of managers have been linked with the Spurs role in recent weeks.
At present, Julian Nagelsmann is the most talked-about candidate following his sacking from Bayern Munich.
Mauricio Pochettino has also been mentioned as an option, as he’s available and obviously has history with Spurs.
However, there are other managers who appear to still be on Daniel Levy’s radar, as per Sky Sports.
One of the lesser-mentioned candidates is Sergio Conceicao, who has an amazing track record at Porto.
The 48-year-old has won nine trophies in his five years at the Primeira Liga outfit.
Conceicao has won three Portuguese titles, three Portuguese Super Cups, two Portuguese Cups and one Portuguese League Cup.
He also won the Belgian Cup with Standard Liege back in 2011.
Fabio Paratici is said to be a fan of Conceicao, and Sky Sports now claims Levy has admired him for some time.
RIGHT FIT FOR SPURS?
The Portuguese is a very flexible manager who can adapt well to the players at his disposal.
He also has strong motivational skills and isn’t afraid to be tough with his players in order to get the best out of them.
Admittedly, this could prove a double-edged sword with regards to Conceicao getting the Spurs job.
Tottenham’s players haven’t responded particularly well to the stick approach in recent years.
Perhaps Nagelsmann is a better fit for Spurs at this moment in time.
