Former Tottenham Hotspur captain Graham Roberts has told Football FanCast that Brendan Rodgers would consider leaving Leicester City to join Spurs following Jose Mourinho’s sacking, despite reports suggesting the Northern Irishman would prefer to stay in the east Midlands.
The ex-Liverpool manager has been linked with the post in north London in recent weeks, with chairman Daniel Levy said to admire the Foxes boss.
He has had an impressive few years, taking Liverpool to within a hair’s breadth of becoming Premier League champions, and then guiding Celtic to two Scottish Premiership titles in a row.
Since his move to Leicester, he has established them as one of the best clubs outside the traditional top six, and they are currently third in the league.
There have been questions over whether Rodgers would consider such a move to a club like Spurs, such is the work he has done at the King Power Stadium, but Roberts believes that the job would appeal to him.
Mourinho was sacked earlier this month, with Ryan Mason installed as the interim head coach until the end of the season.
Speaking to FFC, Roberts said: “Brendan Rodgers is another one. Will Brendan Rodgers want to come to Tottenham? I would think yes, I think we’re a bigger club than Leicester.”
