Tottenham

Brendan Rodgers could be convinced to take the Tottenham job by the “unbelievable” training ground if Daniel Levy decides to make him an offer. 

That’s according to former Tottenham stopper Paul Robinson, speaking exclusively to Football Insider about the latest twist in the club’s hunt for a new manager.

Football Insider has learned from a Tottenham source that the club are lining up a new move for Rodgers and they believe he can be persuaded to quit the King Power Stadium for London.

When Rodgers was asked about his links to the Tottenham job last week, he insisted that he’s happy at Leicester.

Rodgers is quoted by BT Sport as saying, “My focus is here [Leicester]. I’m at a world-class training facility, the project we’re in here we still want to develop and have a lot of work to do.

Robinson claims Rodgers could be convinced to change his mind if Tottenham make a concrete offer.

“It’ll be interesting, the next manager will have a huge influence on Harry Kane’s future,” Robinson told Football Insider correspondent Dylan Childs.

“Brendan Rodgers is doing a great job and, like many others, has kept quiet and said they’re happy where they are but it would be very interesting if and when Spurs do test the water. 

“Rodgers has a great job and a fantastic board, Leicester are a club that are going places. They’ve got an unbelievable new training ground. 

“But if you are looking at the history of Tottenham and the fan base, it’s a much bigger club. 

“Yes, Leicester are higher than them in the league and they’re a better team but the draw is still Tottenham Hotspur. 

“When crunch time comes, if Levy decides that’s who he wants and they test the water, he might change his opinion, it’s a big decision.”

Rodgers has been at Leicester since 2019 after a successful spell in charge of Celtic.

Leicester are six points ahead of Tottenham in the Premier League table and have a game in hand as they look to secure a top four finish.
