Leicester City fans will be perturbed to learn of how Tottenham Hotspur plan to lure current Foxes manager, Brendan Rodgers, to become Spurs’ next boss.
Clearly Rodgers would do a very good job in North London; Tottenham certainly require a seriously talented gaffer at the helm to complement their wonderfully modern and coliseum-esque stadium.
Obviously some recently in charge like the formerly lauded Jose Mourinho are losing ground to younger, relatable managers such as the Northern Irishman. In fact, Rodgers served as a Chelsea Youth Coach whilst Mourinho ran that show the first time around. Additionally, Rodgers suggested that the Portuguese had a “huge impact” on his career, as per Bleacher Report.
So, an appointment seems tailor-made for Leicester’s boss to be courted by the Lilywhites. Yet, importantly, the King Power team’s owners won’t want to lose their man and will demand exceeding high compensation if Rodgers is tempted. But the latter is not interested, he said so himself recently as you can read by clicking here.
Nevertheless, Tottenham are apparently intent on capturing their target:
Next Leicester City outing
After a week off, the east Midlanders face another Friday night Premier League match. This time it is back at home versus Newcastle United, following a fairly poor 1-1 against 10-man Southampton at St Mary’s Stadium. On Sunday the Magpies lost 2-0 to Arsenal. In order for Leicester to keep alive their hopes of Champions League football next season, in my opinion, they must beat Steve Bruce’s side.
That prospective victory doesn’t only provide three points but the momentum going into a tricky trilogy of outings at the campaign’s end. Subsequent to Newcastle, Rodgers’ men play Manchester United, Chelsea twice – including an FA Cup final – and then finally Spurs on the last day of the 2020/21 term.
