WHY IS NAGELSMANN OUT OF THE RUNNING? While it had been reported that it was Tottenham who had rejected Nagelsmann, the Daily Mail claim the German was not convinced by the club's plans for the summer and has thus pulled out of the race to become their next head coach. He could be a candidate for the Real Madrid job if Carlo Ancelotti leaves in the summer.
