We are often dragged into the idea that Leicester are top of every list of news regarding players, managers and different other topics in football, but the answer is a bit different. To try to sort the different stories and act on it can also be difficult, with them all looking a bit odd.
The fact that Brendan Rodgers is a man in demand is nothing new, and with that in mind you are of course not surprised seeing him linked with the top clubs when a manager post comes vacant or their current managers are under pressure.
According to the list of candidates to take over at Man Utd, Rodgers is not considered as a great candidate among fans who would like to see Zinedine Zidane as their next manager. Rodgers is also under a contract which Zidane is not, but it could be that the former Real Madrid manager might be reluctant to a move to England as he has no previous connection with the country.Embed from Getty Images
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer did guide Man Utd to a runners-up medal last season, he was third the season before and in his first season in charge finishing 6th after taking over from Jose Mourinho. Mourinho did guide Man Utd to runners-up in the PL, winning the EFL Cup and Europa League while in charge, Louis Van Gaal did win the FA Cup, and then with OGS getting back in the final of Europa League last season. It might not be good enough for fans of this massive club, the results are good and among the best in the PL, with other clubs dreaming about the same.
The fact that you have been far from winning CL and PL in the years after Sir Alex Ferguson and feel that a gap to the top is huge, must be seen as desperate, and to chase Brendan Rodgers looks a bit pathetic.
We will just wait and see what will happen as different scenarios are drawn up to try to find the perfect solution at Man Utd, but the problem for Leicester fans is the constant talk about our players and manager linked with the clubs that at the moment are below their expectations and are not settled in their current place.
TCF feel that Leicester are and always will be a club that for some reason is not good enough, that is why probably you are also seeing these rumours flying and players and successful managers tend to flirt with other clubs.
The fact that Harry Maguire, Ben Chilwell, Riyad Mahrez, Danny Drinkwater and Ngolo Kantè all have made their move away while being some of the most valuable players at the club, does tell a story and a print that will see other players constantly linked with other more exciting options.Embed from Getty Images
Liverpool and Arsenal are both clubs that has been linked with Leicester players in recent time and with contract negotiations dragging out, having a manager that have a part of his contract saying he can talk to other major clubs and also not stopping any of these speculations.
Manchester Evening News reports late on Sunday that OGS is still safe and will be the manager away vs. Watford, but that game is a must win agaisnt Claudio Ranieri’s men, it could be the hurdle OGS cannot climb, as we have seen other managers leaving their jobs after a clash with our former great.
