Tottenham Hotspur: Brendan Rodgers ‘held in high regard’ by those within Spurs

Tottenham Hotspur: Brendan Rodgers ‘held in high regard’ by those within Spurs - Tottenham Hotspur News

According to a report by reliable correspondent Alasdair Gold, backing up previous claims, Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers is ‘held in high regard’ by some Tottenham Hotspur chiefs as a possible replacement for the under-fire Jose Mourinho.

Tottenham chiefs still eyeing Rodgers

Rodgers has been previously linked to the Tottenham job as pressure grows on Mourinho following a string of poor results, including a humiliating Europa League exit at the hands of Dinamo Zagreb last month.

Can you name all 10 of these obscure Tottenham signings? Let's get started! Who is this?

Providing the latest on the managerial situation, Gold has claimed that there is a ‘growing belief‘ that the Portuguese won’t be in charge at Spurs next season, subsequently listing the two most likely managers as candidates to possibly replace him.

Backing up previous claims, reported that Rodgers is still held in high regard by some Tottenham chiefs within the club alongside RB Leipzig boss Julian Nagelsmann.

Transfer Tavern take

Hailed as an ‘elite manager’ who could ‘manage any team in Europe’ by Robbie Savage on BT Sport recently (via Daily Mail), Rodgers was also allegedly ‘very keen’ to join Spurs back in 2012 according to Football Insider. However, Liverpool made a formal approach first and Rodgers opted to take over at Anfield instead.

While Rodgers has strong credentials (domestic dominance at Celtic, establishing Leicester in the Premier League top five), we believe that Nagelsmann should be first and foremost the top managerial priority if Mourinho is sacked.

At the tender age of 33, the German has already overseen 224 top-level matches with Hoffenheim and RB Leipzig, taking the former into the Champions League and the latter to the semi-finals of that tournament along with challenging Bayern Munich’s Bundesliga dominance.

He has been described as the most exciting coaching talent in Europe, but Daniel Levy and could face a battle for him after Fabrizio Romano’s update that Bayern look set to target him.
