It could almost be the perfect match - a manager who gets up Watford noses taking over a club who certainly won`t be on the Hornets Christmas card list any time soon…
That`s right, Brendan Rodgers - Mr Integrity himself - is today linked with taking the ever so hot seat at crisis club Portsmouth, according to the administrators responsible for getting Watford a fair share of the £2.2m they are owned by the South Coast outfit!
Rodgers, who despite walking out on Watford then getting the boot at Reading, appears to still be hot property with Ipswich, Pompey and even Man City all looking at him with a view to employment.
Pompey administrator Andrew Andronikou told the Portsmouth News "Brendan Rodgers is a name that has been recommended to us by a third party. He is definitely in and around our thoughts"…
…hmm '3rd party' huh? No doubt it`s an endorsement from departing boss, Avram Grant but Rodgers is a good friend of Jose Mourinho didn`t you know?
Rodgers admits he`s "flattered to be linked with the Portsmouth job" and insists "it is a wonderful opportunity to create history at a fantastic football club".
So, ol Brendan might just get the chance to work with the love of his life - Tommy Smith - sooner than we all thought then?
