Tottenham appear to be close to appointing ex-Roma manager Paulo Fonseca as their new head coach.
Former Manchester United and Arsenal ace Henrikh Mkhitaryan, who played under Fonseca at the Olimpico, has previously claimed the Portuguese boss is “similar” to Chelsea coach Thomas Tuchel.
Mkhitaryan said: “He is similar to Tuchel [who managed him at Borussia Dortmund], he is trying to put the players in the right position, giving them the freedom to enjoy their style of play. I’ve had the best coaches in my career and I’ve learned a lot not only about the game of football, but also about life.
“Even now that I am 32 years old I want to learn, because I want to know a lot about football and about life.
“We play differently depending on who we face, especially when we have the ball. Sometimes we have to stay tight, other times we have to stay wide. It depends on the game and the situation. It’s not about the position you start the game in, it’s about the space.
“We try to use the space to create opportunities for ourselves and for our team-mates. The most important thing is the chemistry between the players, because if you have chemistry you can do different things .If you don’t have that, it will be a bit difficult”
