Spurs legend claims ex-PL manager would be “best fit” for vacant manager role

Tottenham Hotspur legend Clive Allen has claimed that former Leicester City and Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers would be the “best fit” to fill their vacant managerial role. 

The Foxes were the last club that Rodgers was in charge of but was relieved of his duties last month after spending four years with the club.

Spurs are without a manager after Antonio Conte mutually agreed to leave back in March. Ryan Mason is currently the club’s caretaker manager until the end of the season.

Speaking to The Football Debrief podcast, Allen gave his reasoning as to why Tottenham should appoint the Northern Irish manager.

He stated, “Brendan [Rodgers], I think could be a good fit. And I say that because his Premier League experience, the way that he likes to play football. And people say that shouldn’t matter. It’s all about winning, but it does matter. It is important in terms of the players that you’re working with, the expectations of the supporters, the way that the club needs to be pulled together. He for me, could be the best fit for the position that Spurs find themselves in.”

A number of Spurs supporters would feel underwhelmed by the appointment if it were to happen.

He did bring two trophies to the King Power in his time with Leicester and was one of the club’s more successful managers.

However, it’s important to understand why he was eventually sacked by the Foxes.

There were a number of factors that have led to the downfall of Leicester this season, but Rodgers did play a part in it and has made some mistakes.

One error was he believed that Danny Ward would be a suitable number one, but that plan has been a failure. As well as a number of other tactical and decision-making errors.

Additionally, a number of players in the squad seemed to lose confidence in him and soon some supporters would follow.

So we believe it would be foolish to dismiss the fact that there’s a potential doubt about him being a success at Spurs. As the old saying goes, those who don’t learn from history are doomed to repeat it.
