Harry Redknapp names who he thinks Spurs' top two managerial candidates could be

Harry Redknapp believes Tottenham Hotspur have Brendan Rodgers at the top of their managerial shortlist, followed by Roberto Martinez.

Spurs are currently on the lookout for a new permanent manager, with Ryan Mason having taken the reins until the end of the season in wake of Jose Mourinho’s sacking.

Sky Sports previously reported that Rodgers was not interested in the job as he believed the Foxes could become regular contenders for Europe.

Despite this apparent snub, speculation has continued to link the Northern Irishman to the Spurs hotseat.

Martinez, meanwhile, is believed to have admirers at Tottenham and, according to the Daily Mail, would be interested in the vacancy after the European Championships.

“If they get the right manager now, Brendan would be top of their list and if not then Roberto Martinez I think would be a runner for the job,” Redknapp told talkSPORT.

“They get the right man in, it’s all there. What a great job for a manager to take.”

TBR View:

Spurs probably have very little chance of landing Rodgers this summer, considering his team is on the up, has just won the FA Cup and could well become a European football regular.

Martinez is a more likely prospect and may not be a bad shout, but Tottenham fans will still be mindful of his defensively lacklustre Everton side the last time he managed in England.
