‘My coaching methods second to nobody’, says Jose Mourinho

Tottenham Hotspur are looking for a new manager after making the decision to sack Jose Mourinho on Monday.

The Portuguese leaves the club seventh in the Premier League and just six days before the Carabao Cup final against Manchester City on Sunday.

Mourinho replaced Mauricio Pochettino in December 2019 eventually guiding the team to a sixth-placed finish and Europa League football.

The 2020/21 season began in much more positive fashion with the side even topping the Premier League table in the early months.

Here are the top contenders:

Julian Nagelsmann 7/2

Steven Gerrard 12/1

Scott Parker 12/1
