Former Tottenham Hotspur captain Graham Roberts has told Football FanCast that the club could well appoint Steven Gerrard as their new manager if Jose Mourinho is sacked.
Spurs are enduring a torrid season and are in very real danger of failing to finish in the top four.
The 3-1 defeat to Manchester United at the weekend has left the club six points behind fourth-placed West Ham United with seven games of the season to go.
Spurs have won just one of their last four games, and there have been various reports claiming that Mourinho’s future could come under scrutiny if the club fail to qualify for Europe.
He does still have the opportunity of silverware, however, with the Carabao Cup final against Manchester City looming.
Still, Gerrard has enjoyed a fantastic season by comparison, guiding Rangers to the Scottish Premiership title without losing a game thus far this season.
The former England midfielder has been touted as a potential replacement for Jurgen Klopp at his boyhood club, Liverpool, but Roberts thinks he could just as easily make the move to north London.
Speaking exclusively to FFC, he asked why the 40-year-old wouldn’t be considered.
He said: “He’s won a trophy.
“He’s only been in it two years, just over two years, he plays the right kind of football so my argument would be, well if he’s good enough to be at Liverpool, why is he not good enough to be in the running for Tottenham?”
