Paulo Fonseca to become new Tottenham manager on three-year deal

John Solano

Former Roma manager Paulo Fonseca has agreed to a deal to become the new manager of Tottenham Hotspur.

According to The Guardian, the 48 year-old will pen a three-year contract with the London side following their unsuccessful negotiations with Antonio Conte.

The English club could reportedly unveil Fonseca as early as Wednesday, officially making him the replacement of José Mourinho, his successor at Roma.

Fonseca spent the past two seasons in the Italian capital with the Giallorossi, compiling a record of 53 victories, 20 draws, and 28 defeats.

Roma announced in early May that they would not offer Fonseca a new contract. Less than two hours after the announcement, the Giallorossi rocked the Serie A landscape by revealing that Mourinho would replace his compatriot.

Before moving to the Italian capital, Fonseca spent three seasons with Shakhtar Donetsk, where he amassed 104 victories, 17 draws, and 18 defeats.
