Former Tottenham Hotspur striker Garth Crooks believes that chairman Daniel Levy should appoint Brendan Rodgers as the club’s new manager.

Rodgers has impressed during his time at Leicester City, with the Foxes currently looking set to secure Champions League football for next season due to their third place position in the Premier League.

Spurs on the other hand are likely to miss out on European football’s most prestigious club competition for a second successive season.

Jose Mourinho was given his marching orders by Levy last week with the club having been in seventh place in the table and recently suffered a humiliating Europa League exit at the hands of Dinamo Zagreb.

Crooks believes that the former Liverpool and Celtic boss is the only man who can fill the vacancy in North London.

Rodgers played down speculation linking him with the Spurs job on Monday night, by insisting that his focus is fully on the job in hand at the King Power Stadium.

Crooks told the BBC: “I might make Chelsea slight favourites for the FA Cup final but I’ve just got a funny feeling it might be Leicester and Brendan Rodgers’ year.

“However none of that must deter Tottenham Hotspur from trying to get Rodgers to fulfil their vacant managerial post. He’s the only man for the job right now.”

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. why do we get rubbish all the time. Rogers aint going to spurs, not just because he is currently at a better club with much better owners he is also a good friend of Jose. Now I know there is no emotion in business but theres always a lot of common sense. He has not just seen how jose has been treated but many managers before. Why would you leave a club who will probably achieve champions league for a club that probably wont even get into the europa. Levy is killing our club

  2. Like Garth Crooks knows anything! This is the bloke that didn’t rate Poch – “he’s won nothing” – and wanted him sacked!!
    Rogers?? No thanks. Bottler.
