According to Sky Germany, Oliver Glasner has told Eintracht Frankfurt fans not to be “worried” about his future, despite reports that the Bundesliga manager could replace Antonio Conte at Premier League giants Tottenham Hotspur..
With Conte on his way out of North London, Frankfurt will not be the only club fearful of a phone call from Daniel Levy.
Fulham, Brentford, and Brighton may face difficulties in retaining their own managers, with Marco Silva, Thomas Frank, and Roberto de Zerbi among the names on Spurs’ managerial shortlist (Sky Sports).
TOTTENHAM COULD LOOK FOR OLIVER GLASNER TO REPLACE ANTONIO CONTE.
Meanwhile, the fact that Glasner has just over a year left on his contract is causing concern among the most pessimistic Frankfurt fans. Tottenham have already made initial contact with the 48-year-old Austrian, according to BILD.
But Glasner, who led Frankfurt to Europa League glory last summer, has used the occasion to remind the media that, for the time being, he will still be at the Commerzbank Arena when the 2023/24 season begins.
We have no control over what happens on the management floor. When there’s a little unrest, it’s not good for any club,” Glasner tells Sky.
We’re experiencing some unrest right now, but I’m under contract for more than a year.
Perhaps you should consider whether such behavior by the media is appropriate. There’s no reason to be concerned. We’ll address it when everyone returns (after the international break).”
Glasner was at Wolfsburg for two years, from 2019 to 2021. To keep him out of Spurs’ clutches, he will reportedly be offered a new contract worth around £3 million per year.
“I’m not sure why anyone is nervous,” Glasner continues. “I still have 17 months left on my contract” (remaining). Nobody was concerned when Christian Streich (Freiburg coach) recently extended his contract, which was set to expire in the summer.
I made no mention of wanting to leave the club. In any case, no one will believe what I say. That is why I will not say anything else.
