Swansea’s Laudrup is the latest to reject a switch to Spurs.
Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy’s tactics of ‘hire them and fire them’ finally seems to have backfired as Swansea City manager Michael Laudrup turns down Spurs.
The north London club are on the search for a new boss after Andre Villas-Boas was sacked on Monday following an embarrassing 0-5 defeat to Liverpool in the Premier League on Sunday.
In Levy’s 11 years at the club there have been seven different people in charge and it seems potential new faces are now put off.
After guiding the Swans to their first major trophy last season, Laudrup has become a hot target for many sides, but the Welsh club’s assistant Morten Wieghorst says the move won’t happen.
“I don’t think the club should be worried,” Wieghorst is quoted by the Mirror.
“We’ve seen in his time here he’s been linked with a few vacant jobs and he’s said: ‘I’m staying’.”
This latest rejection comes in the wake of Ajax boss Frank De Boer also turning down the chance to take charge at White Hart Lane on Thursday, as reported by the Metro.
Likewise after inflicting the defeat that finally cost Villas-Boas the 36-year-old’s job, Reds boss Brendan Rodgers has chosen to further stick the boot into Tottenham.
“A close shave,” Rodgers says when asked about if the Northern Irishman should have taken the Spurs job, as quoted by the Daily Mail.
“They are a great club and one of the things I looked at was the history.”
“They’d had 11 managers in 18 years there so for someone like myself, I needed to create something; I needed to go to a club that was going to give us that opportunity.”
Whatever happens now it seems Levy is going to find things more difficult than expected to find someone to take a Spurs side low on morale forward.
