Paulo Fonseca suffers first blow ahead of taking Tottenham post


Paulo Fonseca is expected in London today to sign a deal with Tottenham, informs the Triballfootball.

The Telegraph says former Roma coach Fonseca is understood to have agreed in principle a contract until 2023 with Tottenham Hotspur, with a one-year optional extension.

The deal is being concluded ahead of the formal presentation of the club’s new sporting director Fabio Paratici, formerly of Juventus, who has led the managerial search in the last few days.

Fonseca, 48, is now in place to take the job pending agreement on the paperwork and the final agreement of chairman Daniel Levy, who has been in the Bahamas with principal shareholder Joe Lewis.

Meanwhile, his long-term assistant Nuno Campos has announced that, after 15 years working in Fonseca’s coaching team, the two will amicably go their separate ways. The two men began as a partnership in senior football in 2007 at Sociedade Uniao 1 de Dezembro.
