According to a report from Football Transfers, there is a difference of opinion among board members at Tottenham Hotspur regarding the potential appointment of Brendan Rodgers as the club’s new manager.
Executive director Donna-Maria Cullen is reportedly in favor of bringing in Rodgers, hoping that he can persuade his former Leicester City players James Maddison and Youri Tielemans to join him at Spurs.
Maddison is regarded as one of the top attacking midfielders in the country, having consistently performed for Leicester. Despite a challenging season for the club, he has still managed to score 9 goals and provide 8 assists. Tottenham could benefit from his creativity and goal-scoring ability in the midfield.
On the other hand, club chairman Daniel Levy is said to be against hiring Rodgers and is reportedly in talks with Oliver Glasner while also appreciating the interim manager, Ryan Mason.
Levy’s previous unsuccessful attempts to hire Rodgers in 2013 and after Mauricio Pochettino’s departure could potentially be a factor in his opposition to the Northern Irishman.
Rodgers has built an impressive managerial resume, achieving notable success with Leicester City, including their first-ever FA Cup triumph this season as well as the Europa league semi-final.
He also came ridiculousy close to winning the Premier League with Liverpool only to lose it out to Manchester City by one point.
The potential addition of Maddison and Tielemans, especially with Tielemans’ contract expiring, could be a key factorfurther enhance Rodgers’ appeal to the club.
However, the disagreement within the board suggests that the decision regarding the next Tottenham manager is far from settled.
As the managerial search continues, Tottenham will need to carefully consider their options before making any decision.
