Brendan Rodgers responds to rumours linking him to succeed Manchester United coach Ole Gunnar

Leicester City head coach Brendan Rodgers has hit back to speculations linking him to succeed Manchester United coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer if he is sacked. The foxes boss claims he is happy and fully focused on Leicester City and not even thinking about the Manchester giants.

Brendan Rodgers had his say today on the rumour in an interview with sky sports.

Rodgers said, “It’s disrespectful for you to ask the question when you have a good manager and a good man who is working at the club. Secondly, I can’t comment on it because it’s something that's not real”. 

“I’m happy and proud to be Leicester's manager. I’m fully committed to this club, players, ownership. All the other noise around is something we can’t control, it’s frustrating to see these rumours. I’m Leicester City manager”, he said to Sky. 

Brendan Rodgers is currently on Manchester United's wishlist on coaches to replace their current underfire manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer if he is relieved of his duties. But contacts and official talks have not started yet.
