Fonseca set to take over as Tottenham boss

Paulo Fonseca is reportedly on the verge of taking over as Tottenham boss.

Fonseca was replaced at Roma by Jose Mourinho, who was sacked as Spurs manager two months ago.

Spurs have turned to him after other attempts to install a successor to Mourinho came to nothing.

Talks with Antonio Conte broke down, while hopes of a return for Mauricio Pochettino from Paris St-Germain were crushed.

According to reports in Italy, Fonseca is set to sign a three-year contract. He appears to have been chosen by incoming director of football Fabio Paratici.

Fonseca is not the man many Spurs fans will have been thinking of as the ideal new manager – and that has been reflected in a generally unhappy reaction on social media.
