Brendan Rodgers sends new message to Man Utd over job after Leicester lose to Arsenal


Brendan Rodgers has insisted that he is committed to Leicester City despite reports suggesting he will be considered for the Manchester United job should Ole Gunnar Solskjaer be sacked. Red Devils boss Solskjaer is clinging onto his job following a disastrous period of form which was compounded by the incredible 5-0 thrashing by Liverpool last weekend.

The Norwegian has won just two of his last seven matches in all competitions. Both of those were in the Champions League.

United were winless in four Premier League games ahead of their trip to Tottenham on Saturday. A 4-2 defeat to Rodgers’ Leicester was followed by the thumping against Liverpool.

Thousands of home supporters streamed out of Old Trafford at half-time as United trailed the Reds 4-0. Mohamed Salah scored shortly after the break to complete a fine hat-trick.

Fans and pundits were split over the merits of keeping Solskjaer in the aftermath of the game. However, the former striker has kept his job and will led the team out against Spurs on Saturday evening.

Another defeat could spell the end, though, and the 48-year-old is aware that he must immediately improve his side’s form.

Leicester boss Rodgers, whose side were beaten 2-0 by Arsenal on Saturday, has been linked with the job but has once again ruled himself out.

“It is an absolutely brilliant club for a manager, a coach, to be here developing players,” Rodgers said after Leicester were beaten by the Gunners.

“You have nowhere near the levels of finance as some of the bigger clubs but what we can certainly do here is compete and that’s what we always want to do.
