“I’m glad he’s gone!” Close call for Spurs? Linked coach blasted by former player

Spurs’ search for a new coach

There has been a number of coaches linked with the vacant manager’s position at Spurs.

Ever since Ryan Mason took charge after Jose Mourinho’s sacking, names have been thrown around with the temporary coach not considered a long-term candidate.

Antonio Conte had at one point been in talks but eventually chose to turn down the opportunity for fear of a lack of competitiveness for trophies.

Former head coach Maurico Pochettino has also been linked but PSG have slammed the door firmly shut on that move.

The search continues but one other coach Spurs have already missed out on may have been a lucky escape.

“I’m glad he’s gone!”

One of the names touted previously was Wolfsburg’s former coach Oliver Glasner who helped the club to 4th spot in the table last season. He left the German club in search of a new challenge and north London was tipped as a possible destination.

However, he eventually joined Frankfurt. The side who finished one place and one point behind his ex club.

Spurs fans may look at the amount of coaches they have missed and feel Glasner could have been the right man to get the club back into the top 4 just like he did with Wolfsburg. However, an interview with one of his former players Joshua Guilavogui maybe shows it was a lucky escape.

On the final game of the season, Guilavogui declined to start the match.

He explained, “I said I wouldn’t go along with it. He wanted to give me a present, but afterwards I would not have been able to look in the mirror if I had accepted it. With that he would not have been able to make up for what was previously broken. Too much has happened.”

When asked about Glasner’s departure he did not hold back.

“I’m glad that he’s gone. In the summer I noticed that it was going to be a difficult season for me and that something had changed in the relationship between the coach and me.”

“I had the feeling that the coach would use every minor injury in the future to keep me on the bench. And that’s exactly what happened.”

“But I never had the feeling that I was sitting outside for sporting reasons, but also for personal reasons. It wasn’t just about football. That’s why I’m so sad. I kept my mouth shut to this day so as not to endanger the team’s success.”

Spurs just let go of one volatile coach in Jose Mourinho, maybe a move for Glasner wouldn’t have been the change necessary?
