Journalist would not be surprised to see 50-year-old become a Spurs target

Journalist Paul Brown believes that we cannot rule out the possibility of Brendan Rodgers becoming the next Tottenham head coach, insisting that it would be fascinating to watch what the Northern Irishman would do in N17.

It now appears fairly clear that Arne Slot has emerged as the big front-runner to replace Antonio Conte at the helm this summer.

In fact, Fabrizio Romano revealed on his YouTube channel on Monday that even sources close to the likes of Luis Enrique, Ruben Amorim and Ange Postecoglou now believe that the Dutchman is the ‘big favourite’ for the Tottenham job.

The journalist asserted that the 44-year-old will have conversations with the Feyenoord hierarchy this week to find out the compensation they would demand to allow him to join the North London club.

However, Brown has now said that he would not be surprised if Tottenham changed course and pursued Rodgers, insisting that the 50-year-old’s reputation remains high despite the way things ended for him at Leicester City.

He told GiveMeSport: “It wouldn’t surprise me if Brendan Rodgers becomes a candidate. He’s been quite highly liked by several of the big clubs for a long time.

“What’s happened at Leicester this season has taken some of the gloss off, but I don’t really think that that’s entirely his fault.

“The fact that they lost players, weren’t recruiting and when they did recruit, didn’t recruit very well really didn’t help him this season.

“I still think he’s a pretty good manager and Rodgers at Spurs would be quite interesting and fascinating to watch.”

This simply seems to be guesswork from Brown rather than being based on any concrete information.

While I agree that one bad season at Leicester does not make Rodgers a bad manager, there is nothing to suggest that he is one of the top names on Tottenham’s wishlist.
