Paulo Fonseca hacked Wikipedia page as fans troll Tottenham over new manager transfer

Tottenham have started talks with Paulo Fonseca to become the club’s new manager in time for next season.

Spurs have not had a permanent head coach since they relieved Jose Mourinho from his post in mid-April.

Mourinho has since been named Roma boss after the post was left vacant by Fonseca himself.

football.london understands that Fabio Paratici, the future director of football at the North London club, is a big fan of the former Roma manager and plays an important role in a potential deal for the 48-year-old to become head coach of Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Now, some football fans have hijacked Fonseca’s Wikipedia page by announcing that he would become Spurs’ new boss.

The opening paragraph of his Wikipedia page read: “Paulo Alexandre Rodrigues Fonseca is a former Portuguese professional who played as a center-back and is the current manager of Tottenham Hotspur FC.

“He was reportedly hired by Daniel Levy in an attempt to get revenge on Jose Mourinho after the latter accepted a management offer from former Fonseca club AS Roma.

“During a meeting with club officials, Fonseca was reportedly ordered to carry his coffee in a flask or bottle, as wearing mugs is not in the club’s interests.”

However, it has since been replaced with a more appropriate and precise opening paragraph.

Spurs have turned to Fonseca after their initial plan to appoint Antonio Conte as their new manager failed last week.

Conte looked set to become Daniel Levy’s man, but talks collapsed after a disagreement over his demands.

Former boss Mauricio Pochettino was the North London club’s premier manager but Paris Saint-Germain blocked a sensational comeback for the Argentine.
