It was revealed that Tottenham Hotspur in the English Premier League, which is known to have been close to appointing manager Arne Slot,토토사이트 did not even contact Slot manager.
Sky Sports in the UK said on the 25th (Korean time), “Tottenham could not reach an agreement with Feyenoord on the terms of signing manager slot, so they did not develop interest.”
“Tottenham have always emphasized that they have never spoken directly to either Slot or Feyenoord, and that they do not comment publicly on anyone who is affiliated with another club. Slot’s statements this morning mean the same thing. The fact is that there was no direct contact.”
Since Slot has a contract with Feyenoord until 2024, Tottenham must pay a penalty for contract termination in order to recruit Slot. According to Sky Sports, there is a clause in Slot’s contract with Feyenoord that, if he transfers to another club, the club must pay 5 million pounds to Feyenoord.
However, manager Slott wanted to bring some of the coaches of his division to Tottenham together. For this he had to pay twice as much as £10 million in penalties. Sky Sports explained: “‘Tottenham executives have told the agent that they are giving up on all potential deals’. They are no longer interested in Slot.”
There is another reason why Tottenham ended negotiations with manager Slot. It is claimed that manager Slot used them to negotiate a renewal contract. Sky Sports added, “Levi was told that ‘he feels that manager Slott used the interest towards him for an improved contract at Feyenoord’.
Tottenham sacked manager Antonio Conte in March and left coach Ryan Mason at the temporary helm and began searching for a replacement manager.
Former Paris Saint-Germain coach Mauricio Pochettino, who led Tottenham’s heyday, Bayern Munich coach Julian Nagelsmann, former Spain coach Luis Enrique, Oliver Glasner Eintracht Frankfurt coach, and Bayer Leverkusen coach Xabi Alonso were all on the list.
However, overtaking them, director Slot immediately rose to the top spot. This is why the leadership that led Feyenoord to the Dutch Eredivisie championship in six years and the tendency to prefer attacking football met the conditions that Chairman Daniel Levy was looking for. Alesdair Gold Football London reporter said, “Tottenham are close to appointing Slot manager,” and “Tottenham regrets that they have not progressed their interest in the Tottenham manager’s job to Tenhach, who was Ajax manager at the time in 2021.” The British Independent said, “Tottenham are looking for a new and progressive coach who can use modern football performance. Some people in the Dutch football world agreed that Slott was superior to Manchester United manager Eric Tenhach, who led Ajax in that respect. Tottenham manager Slott said: It satisfies most of these requirements.”
Then, the news that Slot’s agent Raffaele Pimenta was moving made Slot’s transfer to Tottenham a matter of time. According to Sky Sports, Pimenta told Feyenoord that ‘director Slot wants to negotiate with Tottenham’ and ‘let’s discuss ways to end the contract with Feyenoord’. Reporter Gold also informed, “At a meeting scheduled for Wednesday (25th), if Pimenta told the club, ‘Slot wants the Tottenham manager’, the transfer will take place.”
However, at a meeting with the club that day, manager Slot conveyed his intention to remain, not to transfer to Tottenham, to the club. “I heard a lot of interest and rumors about me,” said Slot. “Thank you, but my wish is to stay at Feyenoord. I want to continue what I achieved last year.”
Then, regarding rumors about his imminent transfer to Tottenham, “There was no conversation with Tottenham. I only thought about extending my contract with Feyenoord. I am looking forward to next season with Feyenoord.”
