Tottenham are set to name Rangers manager Steven Gerrard as Jose Mourinho’s successor.
This is the view of Gerrard’s former England teammate Paul Robinson, speaking exclusively to Football insider on who should fill the vacant leadership position at Spurs.
Steven Gerrard enjoyed great success in his third season at Ibrox, leading the club to the Scottish Premiership title and the last 16 in the Europa League.
Daniel Levy wants to name a young manager in profile, and Julian Nagelsmann, Brendan Rodgers and Roberto Martinez were among the first contenders.
Football insider understands that the club also threw feelers at Fulham boss Scott Parker.
Robinson urged his former employers to consider Steven Gerrard for the vacant position.
“When I look at the list of managers, nobody jumps on me,” he said Football insider‘s Dylan Childs.
“There could be massive reconstruction again. Who do they trust to do it? They had the exciting young coach at Pochettino and they had the serial trophy winner Mourinho. Nor return a trophy for Spurs.
“Where are they going now? The only one that would turn me on, and that we haven’t talked about yet, is Steven Gerrard. I would love to see him there.
“What he did at Rangers was amazing. He is an exciting young manager who won over the transfer market.
“Yes Scotland is nothing like the Premier League, but I love what he did there and how he did it.
“I can’t understand when his name wasn’t mentioned given the other names that were. I think he would be a great option for Spurs.
Speaking about Gerrard this week, Sir Alex Ferguson told The Guardian: “He has done wonderful [at Rangers].
“He really did it, both on and off the pitch.”
