Speaking recently on the Last Word On Spurs podcast, John Wenham put forward the idea that Tottenham Hotspur should make a move to appoint Brendan Rodgers as the club’s new manager.

Following a run of eight Premier League games that has returned just two wins, some outlets have been reporting that pressure could be beginning to mount on Tottenham manager, Jose Mourinho.

A nice easy one to start off with, who is Tottenham's record signing?

Indeed, in Tottenham’s most recent defeat, a 1-0 loss to 17th-placed Brighton & Hove Albion, Mourinho’s side lacked any real attacking momentum, having fewer shots – either on or off target – than their opponents, as well as creating no big chances over the course of the 90 minutes.

And, speaking on a recent episode of the Last Word On Spurs podcast, Wenham stated his belief that Leicester City manager, Brendan Rodgers, would be a good candidate to replace Mourinho, should the 58-year-old get the sack.

He said: “For me – I’m not saying sack the manager – but if I was, he would certainly be the man I’d go for. I think on limited resources, he buys extremely well and I just think he’d fit into the ethos of Tottenham Hotspur in terms of how he works in the transfer market.”

TIF Thoughts on John Wenham’s comments regarding Brendan Rodgers…

Rodgers’ CV is certainly an impressive one, having guided Swansea City to the Premier League in the 2010/11 season, finishing second in the Premier League with Liverpool in the 2013/14 season, winning back to back Scottish Premiership titles with Celtic – one of which was an unbeaten campaign – and narrowly missing out on Champions League qualification with Leicester City last term.

As such, should Tottenham indeed decide to part ways with Mourinho at some point, it would appear, as Wenham suggests, that Rodgers could well be an astute appointment by the north London side.
