Tottenham Hotspur keen to hire Brendan Rodgers as manager in the summer

According to The Sun, Tottenham Hotspur have earmarked former Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers as their top target to replace Jose Mourinho as the club’s full-time manager.

The Portuguese legend was dismissed last Monday with Ryan Mason taking the reins until the end of the season. Spurs have already begun their efforts in search of a full-time replacement and Rodgers is at the top of the list. (h/t The Sun)

It is not the first time at Tottenham have been linked with the Northern Irishman. In fact, he rejected an approach from the Londoners to join Liverpool in 2012. His decision to snub us in favour of a move to Anfield was not well met by those at the club. (h/t The Sun)

He enjoyed some success at Liverpool but faltered after the brilliantly promising 2013/14 campaign, eventually being replaced by Jurgen Klopp. Rodgers then moved to Celtic where he led them to unprecedented success even by their standards.

Now at Leicester City, he looks set to lead them back in the UEFA Champions League after narrowly missing out last season. He has built a young, dynamic squad at the King Power Stadium and has also employed an exciting brand of football that has appealed to fans and neutrals alike.

Perhaps importantly, Rodgers has also shown this season that he can compete alongside the big boys. Wins against Manchester City, Liverpool, Manchester United, Tottenham, Arsenal and Chelsea have all added to his reignited image as a manager in demand. He has also guided Leicester to the FA Cup final this season.

Levy’s vote of confidence!

Despite the prospect of missing out on Champions League football for a second successive season, Tottenham are still confident they could attract Rodgers. Chairman Daniel Levy is in the process of convincing his fellow executives regarding Rodgers’ suitability for the role. (h/t The Sun)

The Leicester boss was one of the coaches to serve under Mourinho during his first spell at Chelsea. While the Portuguese’s star continues to fade, there is hope that Rodgers’ is just starting to shine bright.

Rodgers has shown an ability to resurrect his career and rebuild his image following the disastrous 2014/15 campaign with Liverpool. Six years on, he appears a much more well-rounded tactician and has also shown more tactical flexibility.

While he is not the only name on the list, he certainly presents an intriguing option. We might have missed out on him in 2012, nine years on we could very well land a much more improved version.
