Tottenham face hurdle in Brendan Rodgers pursuit

According to Leicestershire Live, Tottenham will have a huge challenge in appointing Brendan Rodgers. Leicester are very likely to get Champions League football next season, something Spurs are unlikely to attain and he also signed a new deal that still has over 4 years left.

The Portuguese legend was dismissed last week, 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 said to be among the names on the list.

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.

However, that success at Leicester could hamper Spurs’ chances of landing Rodgers. Leicester are in third place and could seal a Champions League spot for next season. There is also the fact that Rodgers is 18 months into a 6-year deal, making it incredibly expensive to prise him away.

Rodgers would be a very good choice for us but the fact remains that we might not be able to offer Champions League football next season. With Julian Nagelsmann off to Bayern, Spurs are slowly running out of decent options for the job.
