Tottenham next manager odds: Rodgers, Howe and Allegri top candidates to replace Mourinho after City defeat

BRENDAN RODGERS is the 2/1 favourite to replace Jose Mourinho following another Tottenham defeat.

The 3-0 loss to Man City is Spurs' fifth defeat in six games in all competitions.


And Mourinho's future is under scrutiny with fans frustrated with his style of football – especially with results now not going their way.

They face a big couple of weeks with Wolfsburg in the Europa League before West Ham away, the second leg of the Europa League clash, Burnley, Crystal Palace and then Arsenal.

And if things don't start to improve then the Tottenham hierarchy could be tempted to pull the trigger.

Betfair make Rodgers, flying high with Leicester, favourite to replace Mourinho if he goes.

Eddie Howe and Max Allegri make up the top three with Rafael Benitez fourth.

While Mourinho is among the favourites to be the next Premier League manager sacked.

It has emerged this week that there is no break clause in Mourinho's contract, meaning Tottenham would have to pay him in full if they were to sack him.

And it is believed that could cost in the region of £35m due to his contract running until 2023.

But Gary Neville thinks he still has time to turn things around, particularly if they win the Carabao Cup – in which they meet Man City in the final.

He said on Monday Night Football: "I agree that this is an interesting moment.

"But in a month he has got a cup final so he could be a trophy winner. They are four points off the top four with a game in hand.

"He is in that moment in his Tottenham career where the next four or five weeks will determine whether we see what we have seen with Jose at his last couple of clubs or we see that, no, actually, he can change.

"He has got to bring Dele Alli and Bale round and I am not saying that he has to pander to these players because Gareth Bale has wound me up all season just watching him smile on the bench.

"Dele Alli, I worked with him for England, I think he is a brilliant talent but he should be doing a lot more. I want more from him. He is an outstanding player. Deliver on a great career. There is a reason why his career is going like this and it is not just Jose Mourinho, Dele has got to get over that himself.

"So for me, the Dele Alli and Bale situations need getting hold of and dealing with properly. That might mean that Jose Mourinho has not got the same control over top players that he had a few years ago when he was winning league after league and could do as he wanted or he will have to change how he deals with players.

"He will have to maintain good relations with the media and I think he is doing that at the moment, I think his interviews are good. He is going to have to win a few football games.

"But I don't think the style will change. The style that Jamie was criticising there is the style we were lauding earlier in the season when Harry Kane was dropping in and playing those balls in behind. It was not much different, he is just doing it without success now.

"There is one more thing. They have just had Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester City. The games are going to get a bit more comfortable in these next few weeks.

"That is why I think these next few weeks will determine whether they are on that Jose period where he starts to get a little bit disenfranchised or he could get hold of it, change the direction of it, get one or two players on side, win a trophy, get Harry Kane back in the team and play some easier games.

"We are in that moment of balance."
