Niko Kovac, who once led Bayern Munich, did not even think about the Tottenham Hotspur command tower.
German media ‘Waz’ reported on the 30th (Korean time), “Covac Kovac rejected the opportunity to become the new Tottenham manager with a single knife.”
On the 27th, Tottenham terminated the contract with manager Antonio Conte by mutual agreement. After parting ways with manager Conte, Tottenham have announced that they will be entrusting the remainder of the 2022/23 season to assistant coach Christian Stellini.
It was decided to digest the remainder of the season with Stellini as acting manager, but Tottenham are looking for a new manager who can lead and develop the team for many years to come.
While Julian Nagelsmann and Luis Enrique were nominated, coach Kovac, who is currently in charge of Wolfsburg, was also included in the list of candidates for Tottenham manager.
Coach Kovac took the helm of Munich as a replacement for legendary coach Jupp Heynckes ahead of the 2018/19 season, but resigned as manager in November 2019 due to poor performance. 메이저놀이터
Coach Kovac, who took charge of AS Monaco after leaving Munich, returned to the Bundesliga in May last year when he signed a three-year contract with Wolfsburg.
The media said, “Covac is one of the candidates to replace Conte,” and “Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy has instructed to find out if Kovac is interested in the Tottenham manager’s post.”
He added, “President Levy did not have to wait long. Negotiations did not even begin as coach Kovac immediately replied that it was impossible to join Tottenham.”
“The reason why Kovac is not considering the Tottenham offer is because of the principles he strictly adheres to,” he said.
