According to a report from The Daily Record, Tottenham are eyeing Leicester City boss Brendon Rodgers as a potential replacement of Jose Mourinho at the end of the season.

A lot has been said and written about Mourinho’s future at Spurs in light of recent results. Multiple reports have suggested that RB Leipzig boss, Julien Nagelsmann is one candidate who Tottenham could replace the Portuguese coach with if results do not improve.

The 33-year-old is said to be open to taking over at the North London club at the end of the season while Southampton boss Ralph Hasenhuttl has also emerged as a target.

The Daily Record now claim that Spurs are also looking at the possibility of swooping for Rodgers, who has done a fantastic job since arriving at Leicester in February 2019.

The report suggests that the Foxes boss has been contacted by a third party to find out whether he would be open to taking over at Tottenham in the summer.

However, it is not mentioned whether Rodgers has expressed interest in leaving Leicester to come to Spurs.

If we end up not qualifying for the next season’s Champions League and Mourinho loses his job, I suspect Rodgers will likely be Levy’s number one choice as a replacement. However, it would be much more difficult to attract the Leicester boss than it would be to get Nagelsmann or Hasenhuttl.

  1. I said mourinho is just a mouth warmer. “take it or leave it”, Joe mour has lost his respect as a coach he has got nothing to offer if not for now, then never. When A coach like him loves to criticize other club and coaches that are doing better and want to expose their tactical imbalances in the name of putting yourself above them, then you will keep losing it.
