Paulo Fonseca: Tottenham in talks with ex-Roma boss over manager role
Tottenham has begun negotiations with Paulo Fonseca, the former Roma manager, about becoming their new manager.
The Premier League team is looking for a replacement for Jose Mourinho, who was fired in April and has since been replaced at Roma by his fellow Portuguese.
Spurs have yet to reach an agreement with Fonseca, and after reaching advanced talks with Antonio Conte only to have the deal fall through, there is apprehension.
Fonseca was a standout at Roma, but he was fired following a seventh-place result.
Manchester United defeated them in the Europa League semi-finals.
After three years at Shakhtar Donetsk in Ukraine, Fonseca replaced Claudio Ranieri at Roma.
In his birthplace, the Portuguese also coached Porto and Braga.
Between 2016 and 2019, he won three consecutive doubles with Shakhtar, as well as a Portuguese Cup with Braga in 2016 and a Portuguese Super Cup with Porto in 2013.
Tottenham has already signed Fabio Paratici as their new sporting director, after 11 years at Juventus.
