Fonseca’s deal to Spurs collapses


Ex-Roma manager Paulo Fonseca’s move to Spurs has broken down.

The Portuguese technician agreed to a three-year contract with the Premier League side following his departure from Roma.

According to Sky Sport, though, the deal has sensationally collapsed due to fiscal problems. The two sides had reportedly already put pen to paper on the contract, but UK-related tax issues have prevented the deal from being finalised.

As a result, Spurs have turned their attention to a less expensive option: former Napoli boss Gennaro Gattuso.

The Italian is available after he officially left Fiorentina earlier this afternoon before even managing a single match for La Viola. He was furious with Fiorentina’s transfer approach and opted to quit just twenty-three days after his appointment.

As for Fonseca, his future remains a major question mark. He previously expressed interest in remaining in Serie A and held discussions with Fiorentina before they chose Gattuso.

However, La Viola may decide to give Fonseca another look as they’ve re-opened their coaching search.
