“I think Rodgers would be tempted to come to Spurs” Robinson confident Tottenham will get their man
By Bruce Grove -

Paul Robinson remains confident that Tottenham can tempt Brendan Rodgers to dump Leicester City to become their next manager.

The Northern Irish boss has been one of Britain’s most successful coaches after enjoying a trophy-laden time in Scotland with Celtic.

He has continued his fine work at Leicester City after leading them to the FA Cup trophy at the weekend.

Spurs are looking for a new manager after sacking Jose Mourinho a few weeks back.

Rodgers has long been their target with Daniel Levy just missing out on making him Spurs boss in 2012 when he joined Liverpool instead.

He is set to reject an approach from the Lilywhites again as he commits his future to the project at Leicester.

However, Spurs might still attempt to make him their next boss and former Tottenham number one, Robinson says it would be hard for him to turn down their approach.

“Regardless of the FA Cup or whether Leicester are in the Champions League, I think Rodgers would be tempted to come to Spurs at the end of the season,” he told Football Insider.

“Spurs are a bigger club than Leicester.

“Yes, Leicester have performed better than them this season but the history, the stature, the infrastructure and the finances of Spurs are greater. Tottenham are a massive global superpower.

“Rodgers can sit in his press conferences and say he is not interested but if Spurs come and test the water in the summer I think his answer will be a little bit different. You cannot turn Spurs down for the opportunity that it gives you.”

Offer him double or triple what he’s on to see how firm his current position is.

Pochettino has won his first major trophy in his first season working away from Spurs. No surprise there then, no longer a ‘loser’.

One of my friends, a fellow yid (can I still say that?) bumped into Karl Robinson the Oxford United manager two weeks ago at a service station on the M4. They got chatting and he asked my pal if he was a football man. When he said he supported Spurs Robinson went on to tell him that he was speaking to Neil Lennon recently and according to Lennon, Rodgers is on his way to Tottenham…

I wouldn’t be totally shocked, Rodgers walked out on Celtic mid season with them on the way to winning the treble. Mind you he had reason to leave as the board failed to get the players he wanted and lots more which I won’t go into here.

You see all the badge kissing and hugging after the Cup final, don’t fall for all that, Brendan is highly ambitious and he’ll have no problem walking away from Leicester if it suits him. It’s business isn’t it, Liverpool had no trouble sacking him when it suited them.

Maybe old Joe was watching on his yacht and saw the adulation for Leicester’s owner and said, I’d fancy doing that, all the Spurs fans cheering Uncle Joe and chanting his name. He’s probably been dusting off the cheque book and told Daniel get me that boy Roy Rodgers and here’s £500 million to be going on with.

Was just about to write that.

At the moment, I would be highly suspicious of any manager willing to come in to pocket millions of pounds a year for saying “great squad, facilities, stadium”, while putting out Sanchez-Dier at CB and Sissoko-Winks at CM, and putting up with Levy’s constant meddling and Hitchen’s incompetence.

I see Kane needing several assurances, a good manager that suits the way we play, and guarantee that the transfer targets we need and the required quality will be obtained. He surely cannot be ignorant of the way we do our transfer of business.

This really will be leaving last throw of the dice with the fans and with Harry Kane. He either steps it up or sells up, everyone has run out of patience.

I wouldn’t say Rodgers to Spurs next season couldn’t happen. He is very ambitious and will leave what looks like a very good set up at Celtic for one he rates as better, Leicester.

I just think a clever man would know that next year with little money to spend and a big gap to the top four to be closed wouldn’t be the right time to move.

Let someone else do the heavy lifting next year and if things improve money wise make your move then.

Hahahahaaaaaa!!

Yes they’ve got the FA cup and Champs Lge football(maybe, most probably not in actual fact) but…..

Robinson is tussling with the caretaker Ry in the competition of new ENIC bum boy of the month.

Dear oh dear, why do ex players keenly roll up to ruin their reputation by being PR mouth pieces to those horrible anti football clowns??

Levy’s only ambition is to get Spurs into the top 4 and if there is a tin pot won along the way all the better. If Rodgers secures top 4 and an FA Cup why would he leave the bosom of Leicester to come work for Levy where the ceiling is no different. I’m sure for Rodgers next move he’ll want to move to a club where the ambition is to compete for the league and CL. His stock is high right now.

Didn’t Rodgers turn us down before?

Any manager with real ambition realises the futility of working with Levy and I think that applies to Rodgers. I’d be amazed if he walked into the owner’s office and said I’d like to work for ENIC, please let me go.

I think the fact that the first thing Rodgers did at full time was face the owner and pump his fist in the air tells me he is staying. There’s some proper unity there.

Also, if I was a Chelsea fan I would be fuming at BBC’s “balanced” coverage.

You can forgive Lineker for his Leicester connections, but Shearer, Wright and former Chelsea player Ashley Cole all saying before the game and at half time that they want Leicester to win was shameful.

I can’t disagree, however Levy was paying Jose 15 a year plus bonuses. Not sure what Rogers is on at Leicester but money talks…

Robbo can’t actually think this is true, can he? Poor fella. We aren’t the draw we were a few years back. We might be to people like Potter or Parker but not to experienced British managers. The togetherness Rodgers has created at Leicester is something to stride for.

Nor can I….he couldn’t recreate it at ENIC fc anyway on account of it being run as a non football entity. Leicesters owners have facilitated Rodgers footballing vision. Levy would suffocate it.

Champions League football, FA cup winners and a decent scouting/recruitment set-up that clearly works for him. Unless we’re doubling his wages he should stay well clear of this shambles.

I’m not even sure doubling his wages would do it. Apparently (if you believe the reports) Levy is happy to make him something like the 2nd highest paid manager in the league to get him to join. I just cannot think of any incentive (aside from cold hard cash) that there is for him to come.
