Speaking to Football Insider, BBC pundit Noel Whelan has been left excited by reports that Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy will offer to treble manager Brendan Rodgers’ wages in an effort to appoint him.
However, a report then surfaced from Football Insider that Levy is now willing to treble Rodgers’ salary in an effort to bring him to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Whelan excited by Rodgers development
Reacting to this development, Whelan has been left excited by the notion of Spurs appointing Rodgers and believes that he is definitely the right man to take Spurs forward.
“Oh my God, absolutely,” explained Whelan to Football Insider when asked if Tottenham should make a large Rodgers offer.
“To get a manager that’s probably the best British manager we’ve had for a long long time, absolutely. There’s no doubt he will make a difference. No doubt that he will treat the players in a different way to Mourinho too. You can see that.
“His style of play is exceptional, exactly what Tottenham want and would suit. His man-management skills, it looks like every player wants to play for him.
“If Tottenham can get Brendan Rodgers, that will be more beneficial to them than getting a star player. He will coach them properly, he will manage them properly, he will set them up properly.
“You can see that he is a man of fine details and he does his job to the best of his ability. That’s just proven in where they are in the league right now.”
Transfer Tavern take
It is reported that Tottenham want an attack-minded manager who can implement a style of play to excite supporters, and we believe Rodgers definitely falls into that category.
The Foxes managed the sixth-most sequences of 10 or more passes from open play out of any Premier League side in 2019/20 (Sky Sports) – evidence of his open, attacking style which puts emphasis on dominating matches.
That he has publicly dismissed Tottenham claims could make his appointment more difficult, but a big money offer from Levy could maybe force Rodgers to reconsider depending on developments.
