“He is such a super coach,” Pundit praises Spurs managerial target
By Bruce Grove -

Owen Hargreaves has heaped praise on Tottenham’s managerial target, Brendan Rodgers.

The Northern Irishman is one of Tottenham’s top targets to replace Jose Mourinho before the start of next season.

Daniel Levy is keen to name a top manager that will guarantee taking Spurs to the next level.

Rodgers has done an amazing job at Leicester City, whom he led to FA Cup success this season.

He has maintained that he wants to remain at Leicester even after they missed out on a top-four finish.

But Spurs will not give up on making him their next manager and Hargreaves has now praised his qualities.

The former Manchester United and City midfielder says he deserves to be managing a team in the Champions League because of how good he is.

“They want to be in the Champions League, they’ll be disappointed, Brendan Rodgers deserves to be in the Champions League as a coach, he is such a super coach,” Hargreaves said on Optus Sport.

“They’ll be disappointed – I still think they’ve massively overachieved, even being there, winning the FA Cup, but getting close and not finishing the job they’ll definitely be disappointed.”

Although Rodgers has continued to publicly insist that he wants to remain at the King Power Stadium, everyone has their price and Spurs could make him and Leicester a tempting offer to secure his services.

Does it matter if God is our next manager ?. Mr Jam Tomorrow Levy will never have the funds to take on City, Chelsea and Utd on a permanent basis. At the end of the day the most money wins the most trophies.

Tell that to Leicester, Wigan, Birmingham City.

It’s not the most money, it’s just about how the club is run and where the right money is spent.

It’s no guarantee, plenty of idiots running clubs, that’s what gives hope to the ones that aren’t backed by countries oil and gas.

But almost every European League is basically a wealth league.

Lille, Atletico and Dortmund give us all hope.

Predominately it’s about money who made up the last four in Champions league? Top 4 in England the richest 4
Wigan and Birmingham one trophy in their history hardly shifts the narrative.

Didn’t say it did. But I choose to be on the side of optimism, otherwise what’s the point in even bothering to follow any team?

As James has also added, the Lille’s, Atletico’s and Dortmund’s of this world give us hope.

Just makes it all the sadder when the very good teams in the ENIC era, were let down by the failure of the man in charge to invest in the playing staff

Bit of an over simplication considering what Leicester have won in recent seasons.

Sorry….the guys a failure, domestically.

The Liverpool “slip”.

Fair enough with Celtic but a trained chimp could have managed that squad at that time. A cynic would say he got out of dodge before things got tough.

And now we are all supposed to be impressed that a team that was in the top 4 for 242 days, more than the eventual winners of the league and any other club finishes outside of it when it was all in their own hands (for the second year running)??? Am I missing something? If that was any other manager in the league, the media would be calling for their head.

“He deserves Champions League football”, he clearly doesn’t Owen.

I think as many pundits have pointed out the top four aligns exactly with monies spent on wages and transfers. I haven’t checked but I’m guessing Spurs seventh place is roughly in line with our spending.

Top 4 based on 20/21 Net Spend:

  1. Chelsea – £154m
  2. Leeds – £96m
  3. City – £91.48m
  4. Spurs £87m

Top 4 based on 20/21 Salaries

  1. Utd £355m
  2. City £273m
  3. Liverpool £271m
  4. Chelsea £265m

We are 6th in this bracket (£258m)

Rodgers has managed in the Champions League with Celtic and the record doesn’t make happy reading.

Celtic stuck rigidly to a 433 in Europe trying to play out from the back and simply didn’t have the players to do that.

The worrying thing was that even after several massacres by the likes of PSG Rodgers never adjusted his style. Total self belief or stubborn pig headedness?

Rogers and Conte are the best we can hope for, anyone else will be just about developing players and fitting into the whole ‘jam tomorrow’ narrative…
