Tottenham Hotspur recently lost out on their place in the top four but it’s only one of the many things which have been going wrong for them this season. With their North London rivals completing the double over them this season, it’s a worrying sign that there’s been a power shift in that area of the English capital.

Antonio Conte’s place at the helm of the club is yet to be filled since his departure. Cristian Stellini has stepped in as interim coach until the end of the season, but if his antics on the touchline continue, Spurs would be better off signing a new manager instantly.

There are many names in line to replace Conte, including the exceptionally talented Julian Nagelsmann, Luis Enrique and even former boss Mauricio Pochettino has been mentioned. But there’s a new recruit, and he’s flied straight to the top of the pecking order.

That’s according to The Sun, who have reported that Manchester City legend and current Burnley boss Vincent Kompany is the new favourite to take charge at Spurs. The news comes after he promoted Burnley back to the Premier League at the first time of asking.

Spurs aren’t in the Championship and they’re by no means at the level which Burnley were last season. However, the way the club is heading, they need someone who’s managed at the bottom and had success to come in and show the players why they need to step it up.

Of course, the news comes as mixed reception to the Spurs faithful. While they’ve had no direct rivalry with Manchester City (except putting the pressure on them a couple of times), they won’t like Kompany’s past with the club. Also, it seems like a stepping stone to what is Kompany’s dream role, managing at Manchester City.

Do you think Tottenham could convince Vincent Kompany to manage them?
