Leicester City have been handed a huge boost in the fight to keep Brendan Rodgers at the King Power Stadium.
The Northern-Irishman has been linked with a move to Tottenham Hotspur in recent days following the sacking of Jose Mourinho, it not being the first time that he has been rumoured to be in the running to take over a North London club with Arsenal also thought to be admirers in the past.
However, Rodgers has allayed any fears over his future with the Foxes, insisting that he is “very happy” in the East-Midlands.
Those sentiments will surely be a huge boost to Leicester as they aim to keep hold of a man who has taken the club from mid-table mediocrity to consistent challenges for the UEFA Champions League positions.
Since arriving from Celtic, the 49-year-old has overseen a total of 103 matches at the club in all competitions, winning 56 of those and racking up the best win percentage of any permanent manager in the club’s history.
Having finished ninth in his first season at the club, the Foxes claimed fifth in Rodgers’ first full campaign in charge, whilst they have consistently been in the top four throughout 2020/21.
Meanwhile, Rodgers has also been able to create history, too, by leading Leicester to their first FA Cup Final since 1969 having beaten Southampton 1-0 at Wembley.
That aforementioned work has certainly drawn praise within the Premier League. Current Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp labelled his influence on Celtic, where he lifted seven trophies, and indeed Leicester as “incredible”.
It will, therefore, be a relief to note then that Rodgers is seemingly not tempted to continue that work at Tottenham Hotspur, instead being content with staying at Leicester – a huge boost for the future of the club considering their current trajectory under the former Liverpool manager.
