Brendan Rodgers remains Tottenham’s first-choice to become the club’s new manager, according to the Daily Mail.
Spurs are looking for a new head coach after sacking Jose Mourinho earlier this month, and Football London claims somebody could be appointed by the end of the season.
The Guardian says Ajax boss Erik ten Hag is set to be interviewed by Tottenham, something corroborated by the Mail.
But the Mail aren’t completely confident Ten Hag will be given the job – because Spurs haven’t given up hope on Rodgers.
The report suggests the Londoners have refused to turn their back on the possibility of luring Rodgers away from Leicester City, who look set to qualify for the Champions League this season.
Finishing in the top four is a much bigger ask for Tottenham, and there will be obvious doubts about Rodgers’ willingness to give up Champions League football.
But the Mail believes the former Liverpool manager remains Spurs’ ‘preferred choice’, despite Ten Hag’s scheduled interview.
With that being said, we think it will be difficult for Daniel Levy to tempt Rodgers, simply because of the Champions League situation.
