Former Tottenham Hotspur striker Teddy Sheringham recently spoke out about the managerial situation at the North London club. In an interview with talkSPORT, Sheringham suggested that Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy should consider bringing back former Spurs boss Harry Redknapp to take charge of the team.
Sheringham’s comments come after the recent departure of Cristian Stellini, who served as the Acting Head Coach until the end of the season. Stellini left Tottenham after the team’s 6-1 loss to Newcastle United at St. James’ Park in the Premier League on Sunday. Following Stellini’s departure, Ryan Mason has been appointed to manage the Tottenham first team for the remainder of the season.
Stellini took on the role of Spurs head coach after Antonio Conte’s departure from the Premier League. He previously served as assistant head coach under Conte.
In his interview, Sheringham praised Redknapp’s ability to manage Tottenham, stating, “Bring Redknapp back, put him in there, he’d soon put a smile on the punters’ faces, get them playing the way they like to see Tottenham play.”
Redknapp previously managed Tottenham Hotspur from 2008 to 2012, leading the team to a top-four finish in the Premier League and a berth in the UEFA Champions League quarter-finals.
Many Tottenham fans may share Sheringham’s sentiment and believe that Redknapp could be the right choice to lead the team at this time. Redknapp is known for his ability to motivate players and bring out their best performances on the pitch.
While it remains to be seen whether Levy will take Sheringham’s advice, the search for a new permanent head coach for Tottenham Hotspur continues. The team has had a turbulent season, and a strong leader will be needed to bring stability and success to the club.
