Jamie Redknapp has given his assessment of the eight leading candidates to replace Jose Mourinho at Tottenham this summer.
Mourinho was sacked by Spurs last week amid a poor run of one win in six matches, with Daniel Levy controversially making the decision six days before their Carabao Cup final clash with Manchester City.
Ryan Mason has taken on the interim job from now until the end of the season, but the 29-year-old failed to provide any form of new-manager bounce in Sunday’s showpiece at Wembley, where the north London club were beaten 1-0 by a late Aymeric Laporte header.
While he is lacking in experience, Mason is amongst many of the bookies’ favourites to replace Mourinho at Spurs on a full-time basis.
Former Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri is another contender to take charge, while RB Leipzig’s Julian Nagelsmann and Wolves’ Nuno Espirito Santo are also in the running.
Speaking to Sky Sports, Redknapp said: “You look at the odds here. Sarri, that will not excite the Spurs fans one bit, not one bit.
“If you look at Nagelsmann, Hansi Flick is going to take the Germany job it looks like, so you’d imagine Nagelsmann will go to Bayern.
“Santo, does that excite me? Not sure. Scott Parker, it looks like he might be going down with Fulham, but he worked at Spurs for a while and played good football, so Daniel Levy might like some of that.

“Ryan Mason at 10/1, you’re not backing him, [Brighton's] Graham Potter, Rafa [Benitez], no.
“Brendan Rodgers is a manager who Daniel Levy tried to get a few years back but would you leave Leicester right now, where you’ve really established something? It’s a really big club, but so is Tottenham. I don’t know whether it would interest Brendan.”
As well as those eight managers, former Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe and Ajax gaffer Erik ten Hag are also being linked with the Spurs post.
Howe has been out of work since leaving the Cherries last year, while Ten Hag has spent the last four years in charge of Ajax.
