Tottenham Hotspur have been dealt two huge blows in their search to replace former manager Antonio Conte. 

The north London side parted ways with the Italian on Sunday and a number of managers have been touted as potential replacements.

One of those is ex-Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino, but it appears that the Argentinean is unlikely to be appointed any time soon.

According to 90min, the former Paris Saint-Germain boss would be open to taking charge of Spurs, but won’t make a decision on his future until this summer.

Conte’s former assistant, Christian Stellini, has taken temporary charge of The Lilywhites, but those in charge of the club are said to be keen to appoint Conte’s successor sooner rather than later.

As well as Pochettino, German Julian Nagelsmann is also said to be interested in taking charge of the club, although he too would not do so until the summer.

Conte left Spurs on Sunday following a fiery post-match interview during which he criticised several aspects of the club, including chairman Daniel Levy.

Pochettino is unlikely to rejoin Spurs any time soon

The rant followed Spurs’ 3-3 draw against struggling Southampton at St. Mary’s shorty before the international break, and prompted speculation that he would leave before their next match.

That proved to be true, as the ex-Chelsea man left the club at the weekend, ending his 18-month stay in north London.

It was rumoured that Spurs could move for Pochettino, who enjoyed a successful spell with the club between 2014-2019, in an attempt to persuade talisman Harry Kane to stay put in the capital, but it appears that they may have to wait if they are to move for the former Southampton man.

Nagelsmann, meanwhile, was sacked by German champions Bayern Munich last week, prompting speculation that he could take the hot seat at Tottenham.

It appears that Nagelsmann will instead wait until the summer before making a decision on his future, though.
