Major new name emerges in Celtic managerial race

Celtic are expected to bring in a new manager over the course of the next few months as the club are facing a massive overhaul in the summer.

In that regard, Eddie Howe appears to be the frontrunner for the Parkhead job. He has been linked with the club for several months now and certain rumours do suggest that he will arrive at the end of the season and is arranging his backroom staff at the moment.

But the longer that this saga continues to drag on, the more doubts will be raised about it. At the end of the day, things can change very quickly in football and he has been linked with multiple Premier League clubs in the recent past as well. Thus, it would be smart on the part of the club to keep alternative targets as well.

As reported by The Transfer Window Podcast (via Sportslens) Paulo Fonseca has been offered to Celtic and Tottenham Hotspur. The AS Roma manager is set to leave the club at the end of the season and will be replaced by Jose Mourinho.

Could Fonseca be a good choice to be the next Celtic manager?

Fonseca has managed the likes of FC Porto, AS Roma, Shakhtar Donetsk, Sporting Braga and many others through the course of his career. He is also someone who is known for getting the most out of whatever is available to him. As a result, he certainly has a lot of pedigree.

And if the club’s pursuit of Howe somehow ends up failing, he could very well prove to be a very good alternative option on the part of the Hoops if there is the option to bring him in at that point of time.

Fonseca is also an attacking manager, which will suit the Hoops very well. But at this point of time, Howe pretty much seems like the favourite for the role and it would be a bit surprising to see anybody else in the Parkhead dugout come next season.
