According to The Sun, Daniel Levy is desperate to hire Brendan Rodgers as the new Tottenham manager, with the Leicester City boss even said to have always been Spurs’ first choice.
The Lowdown: Spurs continue manager search
Jose Mourinho are without a permanent manager after Jose Mourinho was sacked last month – Ryan Mason remains in interim charge.
As such, Levy continues to explore all possible options ahead of next season, with countless names linked with the role in the last few weeks.
The Latest: Levy wants Rodgers
It is now being reported that Levy and Spurs are eager to appoint Rodgers, who has always been their preferred choice for the job.
They are hoping that a Tottenham win against the Foxes this weekend will convince Rodgers to make the move to the Tottenham Hotspur stadium, given that it would place both teams into the same European competition.
The Verdict: Aim high
Rodgers has done a fantastic job with Leicester. He led them to the first F.A Cup trophy in their history earlier this month as they beat Chelsea 1-0 in the final at Wembley, while they remain in with a chance of qualifying for the Champions League going in to the final day of the Premier League campaign.
Would you want Rodgers as manager?
He has won eight trophies throughout his career, with seven coming at Celtic in his previous job. He was also on the verge of winning the Premier League with Liverpool in 2014 – quite frankly, he has more than enough credentials to be given the Tottenham job. A Spurs victory this Sunday could be crucial in more ways than one.
In other news, Levy planned for Harry Kane’s departure months ago.
