Will Michu follow Laudrup to Spurs?
It is still early days in his Spurs career, but with a severe lack of first team coaching experience, it will come as no surprise if Tim Sherwood is replaced in the summer. This will become even more of a possibility if Spurs fail to finish inside the coveted top four once again.
Sherwood has only been given a short term opportunity at White Hart Lane; an 18 month contract seems more like a trial basis. Did they offer him 6 months initially and he declined, as he wanted a long term deal, so they settled for an 18 month contract as a compromise? If Sherwood fails to show promise as a coach in the coming months, the swinging managerial door at the North London club may once again become the centre of attention.
With the recent dismissal of Michael Laudrup as Swansea City manager, it seems he would be the perfect candidate for the Tottenham job. Laudrup brought a lot of success to the Swans in his eighteen months there, including the Capitol One Cup last season as well as a very respectable 9th place finish in the league.
Unfortunately, Swansea has failed to live up to their fans expectations this season, with the team currently only two points above the relegation zone. Aside from this though, Laudrup has a wealth of managerial experience that spans almost fourteen years and he is not expected to be out of the game for too long. He can still regard his time in Wales as a success.
If Laudrup was to end up at Spurs, it is inevitable that he will look towards recruiting some of the Swansea players with priority number one being star striker, Michu. The Spanish star has struggled this season with injuries and has only picked up two league goals. However, last season with eighteen goals in thirty five league games, his true potential was shown and he is destined to move to a bigger club in the near future.
Early reports (via Talksport) are suggesting that Liverpool is also interested in Michu. He would certainly be a great addition to either Spurs or Liverpool, but as is always the story with football, there are no guarantees until there is official confirmation by the clubs.
