Sevilla’s president confirms that their head coach has refused to become Tottenham’s manager.
There have been multiple managers to rejectTottenham’s
offer as they keep searching for a proper replacement for
, who has joined Serie A side, Roma.
Big names like Mauricio Pochettino, Antonio Conte, Paulo Fonseca, and Gennaro Gattuso have been linked with the Premier League side, but none of them seem to be close to joining the club.
Now Sevilla President Castro has confirmed that the club’s manager has received an offer from the north London side, but he has rejected them.
In an interview with Spanish radio station Cadena SER, which was published on Sevilla's official website, Castro said:
"Julen rang me and told me. He said he'd received offers he'd not listened to in addition to a dizzying one from Tottenham.
"But he said he doesn't forget things and that he is very motivated here. We believed and believe in him, giving him a two-year contract extension, and I'm sure he will bring much more to the club.
"You see his ability and leadership every day. Some coaches are more driven by economic factors but Julen is very clear that he is happy here and he even said it would be very difficult to find a better place to work than here."
Tottenham players who aren’t on national duty will return to the club to start the preseason and work on their fitness if they don’t find a new manager by that time.
