Sevilla president says Spurs boss rejected him

Julen Lopetegui has joined a growing list of managerial candidates to reject the vacant position at Tottenham, according to Seville president Jose Castro.

Tottenham have been searching for a new coach since Jose Mourinho’s unofficial departure a week before their League Cup final against Manchester City in April, as interim manager Ryan Mason oversaw a 1-0 defeat.

Since then, Spurs have been in the market looking for a successor to Mourinho, but have had no luck trying to lure a tactician to north London, where he has held talks with the likes of Mauricio Pochettino, Antonio Conte, Paolo Fonseca and Gennaro Gattuso.

Newly appointed director of football Fabio Paratici has been appointed to oversee the recruitment process, but so far to no avail, with doubts over Harry Kane’s future also providing an unwanted backdrop to the club’s search for a new manager.

And one of Europe’s most in-demand coaches appears to have turned down an interest in the English capital, with Seville president Castro confirming that Europa League-winning coach Lopetegui has ignored this approach.

In an interview with Spanish radio station Cadena Ser, Castro said: “Jolin called me and told me. He said he had received offers he hadn’t heard as well as an amazing offer from Tottenham.

“But he said he doesn’t forget things and that he is very excited here. We believe in him and we believe in him, give him an extended contract of two years and I am sure he will bring more for the club.

“You see his ability and leadership every day. Some coaches are more driven by economic factors but Julen is very clear that he is happy here and even said it would be very difficult to find a better place to work than here.”

Lopetegui in Seville

Lopetegui was controversially sacked from his position as Spain coach just before the 2018 World Cup kicked off after Real Madrid publicly announced that he would take over at the Bernabeu once the tournament was over.

Join eggs With a bad reputation after his sharp departure as national coach, he endured some trouble at the Bernabeu, which eventually led to his dismissal after only four months.

After being out of the game for nearly eight months, Lopetegui returned to management, joining Sevilla in June 2019, where he has since regained his reputation and established himself as one of the best coaches on the continent.

In his first season at the Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan, Lopetegui led Sevilla to fourth place in La Liga and won the Europa League, defeating Inter Milan 3-2 in the final.

In 2020/21, he finished fourth in Spain, keeping Sevilla in the title race to the finish, while his appearance in the Copa del Rey semi-final and a Champions League last-16 finisher were commendable feats as well.
