Brendan Rodgers the favourite to replace Jose Mourinho at Tottenham

Sun 21 March 2021 | 11:25

Brendan Rodgers is the favourite successor for Tottenham’s Jose Mourinho, based on the reports.

Tottenham

manager

Jose Mourinho

is heavily criticized following his side’s exit from the

Europa League

on Thursday.

Notwithstanding a 2-0 victory over

Dinamo Zagreb

in the first leg, Spurs were defeated 3-0 in the second.

In the

Premier League

, Tottenham have also climbed down the table to eighth place, having been on the top in December. After their 2-1 defeat at the hands of

Arsenal

last weekend, the eight-placed Spurs are getting ready to go against

Aston Villa

on Sunday.

Should Mourinho’s side come out winners, they will sit three points adrift of the top four. However, if they fail to secure a victory, the Tottenham boss is going to find himself in a difficult position.

The 58-year-old’s contract is due to expire in 2023, and with his £15m-a-year payment it will be hefty for Spurs to sack him before the expiration date.

Daniel Levy may decide to act upon it if Tottenham keep running on a poor vein of form in the upcoming weeks.

Based on reports from 90min,

Brendan Rodgers

is a possible replacement for the legend manager.

Rodgers has pulled off an impressive job at

Leicester

, who are set to go against Manchester United in the FA Cup’s quarter-final on Sunday. Leicester are sitting third on the Premier League table, and it is not clear whether the Foxes’ manager is willing to resign and join Tottenham.
