The work Brendan Rodgers is doing at Leicester City is of course not going unnoticed and it’s likely that his next jump will be to a job at the international scene. The job to coach at a level he hasn’t been doing before will probably be the trigger that could make him decide to jump off at Leicester City.Embed from Getty Images
Gary Neville has spoken up and announced Brendan Rodgers as the ideal replacement for Gareth Southgate as the England manager. But as long as this position isn’t vacant it will be no move away from King Power. Brendan Rodgers is tied up until 2025 and he seems very happy at his post and as we all know, highly thought of by owners, ability to manage high above expectation and really putting Leicester City up there on the top map of football.
England looks on track at the moment as they have an arsenal to pick from and that English players more and more are getting attractive both short and long term, bringing forward the best talents on this planet. England have in previous years come close to a trophy, but the only “big triumph” internationally is that 1966 World Cup.Embed from Getty Images
Gareth Southgate will be the manager of England for the next two years, but he might step down after the 2022 World Cup if that doesn’t work as well as you would think, but for the time being it looks almost certain that Brendan Rodgers will be looking no further than Leicester City for the next seasons, feeling “happy” and close to “silverware”.
Another factor to take into the frame is that Brendan Rodgers is from Northern Ireland and that might be something that would stop him from taking such a position and rather seek other adventures if that comes to the table.
The fact that Tottenham are also seeing their big name star Harry Kane and his unrest, with a possible exit on, will most certainly not trigger any positivity in a possible Brendan Rodgers swop to North London.
