Jose Mourinho is under pressure as manager of Tottenham Hotspur.

The news comes just six days before Spurs take on Manchester City in the final of the Carabao Cup.

Mourinho’s last game in charge for Tottenham came on Friday night when they could only draw 2-2 with Everton to leave them seventh in the table, five points adrift of fourth-placed West Ham United.

Nagelsmann, meanwhile, is the clear favourite to replace Mourinho, with the current RB Leipzig boss at 5/2 to be the next Spurs manager.

The 33-year-old is seen as the next big thing among German coaches, and led Leipzig to the Champions League semi-finals last season.

Nagelsmann become the youngest coach in Bundesliga history when he took over at Hoffenheim aged just 28, and his star has been in the ascendency ever since. He is favourite for the Spurs job, ahead of Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers who is 8/1. Ex-Juventus chief Massimiliano Allegri is 12/1 and Rafa Benitez is 10/1.
