Brendan Rodgers dismisses all claims relating him to Manchester United

After their 4-2 victory over Manchester United, Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers opened up about rumours linking him to the job at Old Trafford.

The 5-0 Liverpool hammering at home was enough to trigger discussions at the club regarding Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s future. Ole has now got a final chance to rectify Man Utd’s form and save himself from the chopping block. He will be in charge against Tottenham Hotspur over the weekend.

Amidst all the ‘Ole out’ discussions, various names have popped up as potential replacements. While Erik Ten Hag and Antonio Conte are the small-term options, Brendan Rodgers and Zinedine Zidane are the long-term ones.

While Conte is the favourite to be Ole Gunnar’s successor, Man Utd are reportedly concerned by how much it would cost to hire the former Premier League winner. Some board members are put off by his abrasive personality and spending habits in the transfer market.

As a result, United are in favour of hiring a manager from within the PL with Rodgers topping the list. The board admire the 48-yrs-old manager’s work at Leicester and believe he can be a suitable replacement.

The former Liverpool manager is one of the best managers in the top-flight and has won the FA cup and Community Shield with the Foxes.

However, Rodgers has dismissed all rumours linking him to Manchester United. The Northern Irish manager said:

“I don’t even think about it – and that’s the brutal honesty. I’m sure the supporters are probably tired of it. At Leicester, there is always a link.”

He further added, “My focus is always here with Leicester and developing the football club on to that next level, where you’re competing for European football and challenging for honours,”

The Man Utd board are yet to make a decision over the issue while Rodgers continues his run with Leicester, as they get ready to host Arsenal this weekend.
