Tottenham Hotspur may be set to move for former Swansea City boss Michael Laudrup. Spurs chairman Daniel Levy handed current manager Tim Sherwood an 18-month contract after sacking Andre Villas-Boas in December, but constant speculation continues regarding his future and Laudrup is a possible target.
There is a feeling among many that Sherwood’s outburst after the 4-0 defeat at Chelsea on Saturday – where he questioned his squad’s character – may have done his position as much harm as good. Netherlands manager Louis van Gaal has repeatedly claimed he would be open to managing in the Premier League after the 2014 World Cup, with White Hart Lane a possible destination.
However, Levy is keen to examine all his options and FootballDirectNews.com understands he may be set to approach Laudrup.
The Dane won many admirers during his time at Swansea – where he won the League Cup – and encourages his sides to play the kind of attractive football the demanding White Hart Lane faithful continue to demand. A White Hart Lane source told us: “Laudrup’s name has been mentioned but nothing is likely to happen on the managerial front – if it all – until the summer. “
