Simon Jordan says Spurs job not enough to tempt Brendan Rodgers away from Leicester
The always opinionated Talksport pundit, Simon Jordan, believes that the Spurs job is not a tempting enough role for Brendan Rodgers to jump ship from Leicester.
Rodgers is said to be one of the top names on Daniel Levy’s list of potential Jose Mourinho successors. Reports continue to link Rodgers with a move to Spurs, despite him winning the FA Cup with Leicester this weekend.
Other names such as Hansi Flick and Max Allegri have also been mentioned. But speaking on Talksport today, Jordan says that the Spurs job isn’t quite a big enough temptation for Rodgers to move away from the Foxes.
“Tottenham is not an upward move for him. It’s a sidewards move if anything,” Jordan said.
“The reality of it is, that Leicester are a far better club in lots of ways. I think Brendan has got the footballing nouse to know when to stick and when to twist. And Spurs is not a big enough job, potentially to jump from Leicester to Tottenham. Especially when you have to work under Daniel (Levy).”
Rodgers is seeing his reputation in the game grow by the year. He won numerous titles with Celtic, and very nearly got Liverpool their first Premier League title.
TBR View: Jordan is right, at the moment the Spurs job is a side step
A lot of clubs and managers would see Spurs as a jump, and in terms of the size of the club, stadium, and financial backing, it might be.
But in terms of the football, why would Rodgers leave Leicester for Spurs? It just doesn’t make sense. He is building something with the Foxes and has some fine players.
Moving to Spurs now would throw it all away and be a big risk. Rodgers should stay put, for the foreseeable future at least.
