‘Nagelsmann A Good Fit For Tottenham’ Says Rangnick

Last month, Ralf Rangnick suggested Nagelsmann would be a good fit for the Tottenham job.

The ex-Manchester United manager, who mentored Nagelsmann at Hoffenheim and RB Leipzig, felt at the time that the Spurs set-up would suit his young compatriot, working alongside a sporting director.

Rangnick filled that role for the Red Bull franchise of clubs, including Leipzig and Salzburg, between 2012 and 2015 and then again from 2019 to 2020.

“I think Tottenham is an exciting club in many ways,” Rangnick said in the Sky Germany studio.

“They probably have one of the most modern, beautiful stadiums in the world at the moment. They have one of the best training centres, that is there at the moment and Daniel Levy, who has been leading the club for many, many years.

“Although he is not a big spender, he knows the football business and would not put himself in the centre of the cameras.

“If Tottenham really want [Nagelsmann], then I think it would be important if a sporting director was still there to support him.

“It can be a very, very exciting story. There is room for improvement, a lot of room for improvement and yet this is not a club where the house expects you to be in the top one or two right away.”

It is still unclear who will be the new sporting director at Tottenham after Fabio Paratici resigned last month.

Sky Sports News has been told Johannes Spors is one of a number of sporting directors the north London club are looking at.

Spors is a global sporting director for a number of clubs, including Genoa, Standard Liege and Melbourne Victory.
