Former Celtic manager ‘admired’ for Tottenham Hotspur role

Former Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers is reportedly admired by Tottenham Hotspur, should the English club look to appoint a new manager this summer. The Irishman is currently in a relegation fight with Leicester but it is clear to see the lack of investment with the Foxes, which will likely result in a parting of ways this summer.

According to Talksport, Rodgers’ name is one that Daniel Levy and the Spurs hierarchy respect should they replace Antonio Conte this summer. Conte appears set to leave given a poor season, failing to capitalise on their Top Four finish last season. Mauricio Pochettino is amongst the favourites with Celtic manager Ange Postecoglou stating he wasn’t interested.

Rodgers was at the Celtic helm for two and a half years. The ex-Liverpool manager won seven trophies in a row, an Invincible Treble, a 69-game unbeaten run and numerous other successes before being replaced by Neil Lennon when he left for Leicester in February 2019. Supporters will likely recognise how impressive Rodgers’ time at the club was Many people realised that there were issues at a boardroom level that led to his departure, which was emphasised by the off-field mess of two seasons ago.

The manager has proven his worth as a coach but he also has a petulant side. There are patterns between his exit from Liverpool, Celtic and his current period with Leicester. Rodgers had enjoyed success with Leicester, finishing fifth twice and winning an FA Cup; however, he will likely be unable to match the intensity of the Celtic job wherever he goes.
