Brendan Rodgers has admitted that while it is an honour to be linked with a big club like Tottenham, he has no interest in abandoning the project he is undertaking at Leicester.
If recent reports are to be believed, Rodgers now seems to be Tottenham’s prefered choice to replace Jose Mourinho, particularly with Julian Nagelsmann and Erik ten Hag out of the running for the job.
There have been contradictory suggestions from the British press regarding the North London club’s pursuit of the Leicester boss.
While some sources have suggested that appointing Rodgers could prove too expensive for Tottenham, others have claimed that Daniel Levy is not ready to give up on the chase for the Northern Irish coach and is prepared to spend big to bring him to Tottenham.
However, Rodgers has now given his clearest indication yet that he has no intention of leaving the King Power Stadium anytime soon.
When asked about the speculation linking him with the Spurs hot seat, the former Liverpool boss said (via The Daily Mail): “I’m very, very happy here. I have a huge respect here for the players, the board and I really feel that I want to continue my work here.
“I’ve got a set of players that give me their heart and soul every single day and also I can see a future here in terms of the development of the squad.
“I’ve got a really strong relationship with the board. We work very closely together.
“I always knew what the challenge was coming here, to try and improve the squad, and over the last couple of years what we’ve been able to do is build an infrastructure around behaviour and creating a mindset in order to win.
“That’s not easy but you see now the mentality around developing that will and desire to win.
“Now for the next period of years let’s see if we can roll that out now, can we continually evolve.
“Tottenham is a great club, one of the biggest clubs in Britain but for me, I’m just in a really, really happy place in my life.”
Spurs Web Opinion
With Nagelsmann, Ten Hag and now Rodgers potentially unavailable, it is clear that we would be taking a gamble no matter who we appoint. I personally think Graham Potter would be the best option we can go for among those available.
