Tottenham not giving up on Brendan Rodgers pursuit

According to Daily Mail, Tottenham have not given up on their pursuit of Brendan Rodgers for the managerial position next season. The Leicester City manager went public a few days ago to say that he will not be taking up the Spurs job.

Tottenham are on the lookout for a new full-time manager after Jose Mourinho was sacked by the club last week following a disappointing run of results. While Ryan Mason has been given the reins on an interim basis, Spurs are actively looking for a new head coach. They have now lost two candidates – Julian Nagelsmann and Jesse Marsch.

Rodgers’ name has also been doing the rounds for Spurs. 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 deployed 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.

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.

Rodgers recently ruled himself out from taking over at Spurs next season but the club are not willing to give up. They hope that he could change his mind depending on how the season ends and what success he gets with Leicester.

The Irish manager 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. There are too many factors that make it a messy affair to prise him away from Leicester.
