Brendan Rodgers has been touted as a potential manager for Manchester United but appears to remain in his current job.


What did Brendan Rodgers say?

The Foxes boss has once again reaffirmed his commitment to Leicester, insisting that rumors linking him to his work at Man Utd are fake. Brendan Rodgers, who led the club to the FA Cup success last season, is shortlisted by Man Utd as the club sees Solskjaer’s successor. However, the former Liverpool head coach has moved to distance himself from these rumors, insisting that he is happy at King Power Stadium.

Brendan spoke at a press conference to preview Thursday’s Europa League draw against Warsaw’s Legia, and Man Utd’s vacancy was unsurprisingly one of the topics raised by reporters. When asked about rumors linking him to a move to Old Trafford, Brendan Rodgers said that he does not perceive it as anything, it is not real.

There is always gossip and it will be there until a full-time manager is appointed. According to Brendan Rodgers his commitment is here. The culture here is about player development, and that’s where he sees it, especially during this period.


A little about the topic

Boss Paris Saint-Germain Pochettino is Man Utd’s preferred choice to replace Ole. The former Tottenham boss is believed to be addicted to the move, but Paris Saint-Germain are reluctant to lose the Argentine mid-season and have fought back Man Utd’s inquiry. It is therefore expected that the club will continue to insist on its original plan to appoint an interim manager until the end of the season before making a permanent appointment in the summer.

Former Barcelona coach Valverde is one of the names on their shortlist and has already negotiated a short-term takeover of the reins. Carrick is currently in charge and led the club to a 2-0 Champions League victory against Villarreal on Tuesday.
