Brendan Rodgers, the manager of Leicester City, has dismissed speculations that he could be the next Manchester United manager.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s long-term future at Old Trafford has been a constant topic of debate for a number of weeks, following six defeats in 12 games.
According to reports, Rodgers is in position to replace Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at United, with some claiming that the Northern Irishman has been house-hunting in the region.
Rodgers, on the other hand, has slammed the current speculations, claiming that none of the rumors about him are true.
Speaking to reporters at a press conference, Rodgers said: “Firstly, it’s really disrespectful for you [a reporter] to ask the question when there is a manager in place – a good manager and a good man – who’s working at the club.
“And secondly, I can’t really comment on it because it’s something that’s not real.
“I’m here as the Leicester City manager; proud to be here, privileged to be here and fully committed to the players, the club and the ownership. And that’s about it, really. All the other noise around that, is something we can’t control.”
