Brendan Rodgers has denied rumors connecting him to Manchester United.
With the Red Devils in seventh place in the Premier League league and a 5-0 thumping at the hands of Liverpool on Sunday, pressure on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has mounted, with questions about his future at Old Trafford surfacing.
Rodgers, the manager of Leicester City, was apparently being considered as a possible replacement for the Norwegian, but he has since denied the reports.
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. 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 honors,” as quoted by The Mirror.
After two consecutive fifth-place finishes, Rodgers’ Foxes are currently tenth in the Premier League table, including a 4-2 victory over Manchester United earlier this month.
The former Liverpool manager was reportedly on the Old Trafford club’s shortlist, alongside the likes of Erik ten Hag and Antonio Conte, who are expected to look for a long-term successor.
