TalkSport pundit Trevor Sinclair has suggested that Frank Lampard could be a choice for Tottenham Hotspur to appoint as their manager.
Spurs’ search for a new manager is still rumbling on with seemingly no end in sight as they find themselves being turned down on what appears like a daily basis at this rate. As a result, there really shouldn’t be any manager that is off the table for them to look at, even if it means going down a route that might be somewhat controversial, as Sinclair claimed on TalkSport.
“I think he’s a good fit. I think he did a good job especially in that first season at Chelsea when they had the embargo and transfers, they just lost their best player and he went in there and steadied the ship, gave a lot of young players the opportunity.
“Now we’re talking about Tottenham, they’ve got this unbelievable academy. Surely they want to bring through the young players like that? Frank’s the ideal man, especially when you’ve got Jody Morris with him.”
TIF Thoughts on Trevor Sinclair’s comments about Frank Lampard and Tottenham…
Would you be comfortable with Lampard as Tottenham manager?
This certainly would be a very controversial appointment if the club were to do it given the animosity between the two sides, it might even go so far as to have an impact on his legacy at Stamford Bridge if he were to take it.
Although given that they have appointed former Chelsea bosses before in the form of Glenn Hoddle and Jose Mourinho, and even an ex-Arsenal manager in George Graham, it certainly does seem like the board at Tottenham aren’t too concerned with appointing people from rival clubs, especially given the people that have turned them down, they can’t afford to be picky.
So he certainly can’t be ruled out, and if he can have the impact that he did during his first season, then he might just be the man to take them in the right direction.
