‘False accusations’ – Gattuso spoke about the failed appointment to Tottenham Hotspur last year

    The specialist could become the head coach of the London club after Nuno.

    Valencia head coach Gennaro Gattuso spoke about why he was not appointed to Tottenham Hotspur a year ago. According to the Italian, false accusations of racism played a key role.

    “When I left Fiorentina, everyone thought that I would lead Tottenham. We did negotiate, but I was not appointed because of false accusations, because of something that does not concern me at all. If the management of Tottenham had behaved differently, perhaps everything would have turned out differently,” – as quoted by the journalist Gianluca Di Marzio.

    Gattuso has recently been appointed the manager of Valencia. In his new club, the Italian wants to see Tiemoue Bakayoko, who played under his guidance in Milan and Napoli.
