Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers makes staunch admission about future after Tottenham links

Speaking in the post-match press conference (h/t Leicestershire Live) after his side’s loss to Tottenham Hotspur, Brendan Rodgers assured his club’s fans that he will stay as the manager of Leicester City next season.

Spurs scored 3 goals in the last 15 minutes of Sunday’s game to hand Leicester a damaging 4-2 defeat. A Harry Kane volley sandwiched between two Jamie Vardy penalties saw the Foxes lead for the majority of the game.

Taking into account Chelsea’s loss at Aston Villa, a win for Leicester would have seen them qualify for the UEFA Champions League next season. But it was not to be.

Leicester City manager, Brendan Rodgers, has been linked with the Tottenham Hotspur job.

A Kasper Schmeichel own goal and two strikes by substitute Gareth Bale ended Foxes’ hopes for the UCL. Rodgers’ work at Leicester City, though, has not gone unnoticed.

No Rodgers for Spurs

The Northern Irish manager has been linked with the vacant managerial role at Spurs for a while now. However, the former Liverpool boss assured Leicester fans that he will be at the King Power Stadium next season.

“They (Leicester City fans) need have no worries about myself. I absolutely love it here at Leicester City, even more so now that we’ve just missed out. It motivates me even more to be here to help the club and push the club towards that level… That’s my message.”

Rodgers becomes another Spurs-linked manager to distance himself from a move to Spurs. Julian Nagelsmann signed a contract with Bayern Munich while Erik Ten Hag renewed his deal at Ajax.

Nevertheless, with the season now over for the Lilywhites, Daniel Levy can shift his focus on finding the next manager for the club. Someone with the same pedigree as Jose Mourinho would be a great catch for the club but it remains to be seen who Spurs go for in the summer.
