Fabio Capello is favourite to become the next manager of Tottenham Hotspur following the sacking of manager Andre Villas-Boas.
The current Russian manager was at White Hart Lane for Tottenham's 5-0 defeat to Liverpool, despite the fact there are no Russian players in either squad.
Capello feels he has unfinished business in England and has previously spoke of his desire to manage in the Premier League following an unsuccessful tenure with the national side.
Russia qualified for the World Cup in Brazil one point ahead of Cristiano Ronaldo’s Portugal and have been placed in Group H along with Belgium, Algeria and South Korea.
Spurs were the biggest spenders over the summer with the main objective being a return to the Champions League.
Tottenham currently occupy 7th place in the Premier League, five points behind 4th place Manchester City, and eight points behind bitter rivals Arsenal.
Swansea manager Michael Laudrup and another former Russia manager Gus Hiddink are the other front runners for the vacant manager's job.
