Tottenham Hotspur (England) are reportedly targeting Brandon Rodgers (50-Northern Ireland) as their new manager and are even planning to bring in Yuri Tillemans (26) and James Maddison (26), who were both ‘protégés’ at Leicester City (England), at the same time.
British media outlet ‘Football Transfer’ reported on the 26th (KST), “Tottenham are understood to have formally offered Rodgers the managerial job. However, Graham Potter (48, England) and Luis Enrique (53, Spain) are also on the shortlist and are being monitored,” the publication exclusively reported.토토사이트
Tottenham have been searching for their next manager since sacking Antonio Conte (53-Italy) at the end of March, but their search has been stalled. With Fabio Paratici (50-Italy) out of the picture following his FIFA suspension, there is no suitable candidate to lead negotiations, and the club’s failure to qualify for the UEFA Champions League (UCL) has led to talks breaking down time and again.
In fact, the closest link since last month, Julian Nagelsmann (35, Germany), fell through due to disagreements over player signing rights and the appointment of a new coach. More recently, talks had moved towards the appointment of Arnie Slott (44, Netherlands), with some even claiming that a deal had been completed, only to be rejected again after failing to bridge the gap over penalties and salary.
With the search for a manager back to square one, Spurs are now on the move again, with a shortlist of candidates. In the midst of this, Rodgers, who is currently untouchable after parting ways with Leicester City (England) by mutual consent last month, has emerged as the favourite.
Tottenham are reportedly keen on Rodgers because of his longevity and consistency in the English Premier League (EPL). In fact, he started as Chelsea’s (England) academy manager in 2004 and went on to manage Watford, Reading (England) and Swansea City (Wales). He then went on to manage Liverpool (England) and Celtic (Scotland) before most recently taking charge of Leicester City.
Tottenham, in particular, are looking to bolster their squad with the appointment of Rodgers and the simultaneous signings of Tillemans and Maddison, both of whom were with him at Leicester City until last month. However, it is still unclear whether chairman Daniel Levy (60-England) will approve the move.
