Robbie Keane narrows down Tottenham Hotspur’s managerial targets to two candidates

According to the Express, Tottenham Hotspur hero Robbie Keane has narrowed down Tottenham Hotspur’s managerial target to two candidates – Brendan Rodgers and Mauricio Pochettino.

Tottenham Hotspur has been in search of a new manager since the exit of Antonio Conte a few weeks ago. Interim boss Ryan Mason has been in charge of the team twice now, but Keane doubts he will be given the job permanently.

Pochettino is a familiar face at Tottenham Hotspur, having managed the club from 2014 to 2019. During his tenure, he led Spurs to the Champions League final, which they lost to Liverpool.

Keane believes that Pochettino’s return would be welcomed by the Tottenham faithful, as they have fond memories of his style of play and his ability to bring the best out of the team. However, he seems to be closer to a Chelsea move.

Rodgers, on the other hand, has recently seen his stock decrease after a disappointing season at Leicester City. He was sacked by the Foxes recently and finds himself out of a job as things stand.

The favourite for the job, according to many reports, is Julian Nagelsmann. The former RB Leipzig manager is considered one of the brightest young coaches in Europe and has already achieved great success at a young age.

However, Keane believes that the priority should be finding the right fit for the club, rather than just going for the hottest name in the market.

“Pochettino himself. The Spurs fans absolutely love him. The way he played football he got them to the Champions League Final. Him or Brendan Rodgers. I think Brendan Rodgers could bring stability to the club, and the way he plays, he plays the game”

Mason, meanwhile, has been praised for his work as an interim boss at Tottenham Hotspur. The former midfielder has been with the club since he was a youth player and has a strong understanding of what the club means to the fans.
