Brendan Rodgers quashes Arsenal top job rumours

Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers has refuted the rumours linking him with the manager’s job at Arsenal. 

Rodgers has done a spectacular job at the Foxes since arriving from Celtic last year. They sit second in the Premier League, eight points behind leaders Liverpool at present.

Arsenal sacked Unai Emery last week after a poor start to the season, and Rodgers is the bookies favourite to take over at the Emirates.

Rodgers said in his post-match press conference: “I don't think so much about it. It's not in my control.

“I came here to help the project and see if we could bring it forward. I'm at a great club. I absolutely love it here.

“It seems now you're talking about a manager losing their job all the time and looking to be replaced.

“Names will get thrown right, left and centre. For the Arsenal job there are probably about 10 names. Me, I'm just concentrating on Leicester,” he added.
