Teddy Sheringham wants Brendan Rodgers at Tottenham Hotspur.
Former Spurs striker Teddy Sheringham believes Daniel Levy should break the bank for Brendan Rodgers who has an exceptional job at Leicester.
Tottenham are looking for a new boss after the sacking of Jose Mourinho while Ryan Mason continues to fill caretaker duties.
Sheringham told Gambling.com: “If I had the pick of the bunch and Tottenham were ready to go out and spend big money, which I presume they will, then I would go and break the bank for Brendan Rodgers.
“I think he’s done an outstanding job at the different clubs he’s been at. He knows the Premier League very well, he knows his system and how he wants the game to be played. He takes the game to the opposition, he doesn’t wait to capitalise on other peoples’ mistakes and he likes to control the game a bit like how Pep Guardiola does.
“Given the funds that were available for Jose Mourinho, if Rodgers was backed with the same sort of money then I think he would do a fantastic job.”
Rodgers on the Tottenham job said: “Tottenham is a fantastic club, it’s one of the big clubs in this country, it’s a huge club. My focus is purely here.
“I’m at a world-class training facility, the project we’re in here, we still want to develop, we still have a lot of work to do here.
“I have a great connection with the players and the board, and we have plans to keep progressing.”
