Tottenham manager odds: Nuno heads field
Spurs qualified for the inaugural Europa Conference League on the back of a 4-2 win at Leicester on Sunday afternoon but who will be at the helm of a squad likely to be without skipper Harry Kane next season?
Ryan Mason has been in charge of Tottenham since Jose Mourinho was sacked in April and he is 25/1 to be appointed the next permanent manager.
We take a look at who is in the running for the hot seat and their Tottenham manager odds.
Nuno Espirito Santo
The Portuguese surprisingly left Wolves on Sunday after four seasons at Molineux during which he got them promoted to the Premier League and led them to the quarter-finals of last season’s Europa League.
The shock announcement, which was a mutual decision, led to speculation Espirito Santo would be appointed Spurs manager.

The former Porto boss struggled this season having lost Diogo Jota and Matt Doherty to Liverpool and Tottenham respectively, although Wolves’ biggest setback was the fractured skull sustained by star striker Raul Jimenez.
Was evens favourite but is now 6/4 in the next Tottenham manager odds.
Erik ten Hag
Steered Ajax to a third successive Eredivisie title since being appointed at the start of 2018 and also masterminded a run to the Champions League semi-finals two years ago, so he has the winning mentality needed to succeed at a team like Tottenham.
Ajax won the title by 16 points despite selling some of their star players in the last couple of years such as Frenkie de Jong, Matthijs de Ligt, Hakim Ziyech and Donny van de Beek.
Unlike Espirito Santo, Ten Hag is attack-minded and is available at 5/1 in the Tottenham manager odds but he extended his contract with the Dutch giants last month so it will cost Tottenham big bucks if they want to bring him to north London.
The former Liverpool and Celtic boss missed out on Champions League football on the final day of the season for the second year in a row on Sunday when Leicester twice squandered the lead to lose to Tottenham so they will be playing in the Europa League once again.
The Foxes had been in the top four for most of the season so there will be disappointment at the King Power but they won the FA Cup for the first time in their history thanks to a Youri Tielemans wonder goal.
The Northern Irishman has developed an exciting squad and unearthed a gem in young defender Wesley Fofana but would Rodgers make the leap to head a team playing in the Europa Conference League? Available at 7/1.
The former Swansea manager and York left-back has transformed Brighton into an exciting team, one which would have been challenging for honours if they had a couple of decent strikers.
👍 Despite defeat this afternoon, Graham Potter is proud of the steps his side have taken during the 2020/21 @PremierLeague campaign.

Potter remarkably led Ostersund from the fourth tier in Sweden to the top flight for the first time in their history and qualified for the Europa League group stage having beaten Galatasaray over two legs.
The much-respected German coach has not managed a team since finishing a second spell with RB Leipzig at the end of the 2018-19 season, so he is available to take charge of Spurs without the need of compensation.
Was a huge success as director of football in a dual role with RB Salzburg and RB Leipzig, who rose from the fourth tier of German football to the Bundesliga in 2018, six years after Rangnick was appointed.
This highly-technical coach, nicknamed ‘The Professor’ because he used to publicise his tactics, can be backed at 14/1.
