Tottenham Hotspur have appointed former England U21s manager Rehanne Skinner as manager.
The senior assistant coach takes on her new role following the departure of Karen Hills and Juan Amoros.
The managerial duo oversaw the north London outfit’s arrival into the Women’s Super League in 2019 following their promotion from the Championship. After a poor start to what has been the one of the most competitive seasons to date, Skinner hopes to take the reins and propel the club further up the table.
“I am incredibly excited by this opportunity,” she said. “This will be a great chance for me to further progress my coaching career.”
Previously, Skinner co-founded Leicester City Women’s Football Club, where her coaching role saw the side secure four consecutive promotions. The decorated coach has also spent three years at Arsenal, helping them to achieve two WSL titles, two Continental Cups, one FA Cup and two Champions League semi-final spots.
Spurs are currently placed 11th in the table, only two points ahead of relegation candidates Bristol City. They are hoping to turn the tide with Skinner’s appointment and get some much needed points on the board.
With the high-profile acquisition of many footballing stars this summer – including the likes of USWNT star Alex Morgan – Skinner certainly has plenty of talent at her disposal to get Spurs the results they need.
