Oliver Glasner could make Romaine Mundle Sancho 2.0 if he joins Tottenham – Our View
Tottenham are said to be interested in hiring Oliver Glasner to replace Antonio Conte, which could be good news for Romaine Mundle.
What’s the matter?
Now – according to the picture – Spurs have been in contact with the Austrian as they try to replace Conte.
Interestingly – as detailed by Sky Germany – Glasner has since turned down the offer of a new deal from Eintracht Frankfurt so this rumor seems to have legs.
If the 48-year-old arrives at N17 this summer, it could change the career of Mundle, a 19-year-old prospect at Spurs who is on the verge of a first-team breakthrough.
Well – acc Fabrizio Romano – Glasner wants or at least wanted Eintracht Frankfurt to sign Mundle, and 1. FC Köln are also interested in the teenager.
So it certainly seems like the Austrian is a fan of the London-born winger.
One could even argue that Eintracht Frankfurt and Glasner see Mundle as someone capable of making a Jadon Sancho-style breakthrough.
After Borussia Dortmund hauled the winger out of Manchester City’s academy and turned him into a £73million superstar, some German clubs have kept tabs on England’s youth stars in hopes of finding the next Sancho.
An example of this is Bayern Munich eyeing Everton’s jewel Ellis Simms – as revealed by The Sun.
Mundle was recently called up by Conte for the 3-1 win over Nottingham Forest in the Premier League and has also been a regular in first-team training for the past 12 months.
So it seems he’s not far from his senior debut and Glasner’s appointment could kick-start his career in north London.
How Glasner could use Mundle at Tottenham
With Glasner working with Mundle this summer, we could see the teenager – who can act as a winger on either flank – deployed more centrally where he can make an impact, as seen in footage below.
Glasner relies on a 3-4-2-1 system at Eintracht Frankfurt, with two attackers playing in tight form just behind the striker, rather than hugging wide men on the sidelines.
If not, Mundle could also be trained as a full-back in the 3-4-2-1 form.
Wherever he is deployed, Mundle’s career could well take off under Glasner if he has the desire to bring the Tottenham academy graduate to Germany.
