Joe Cole explains why Brendan Rodgers’ Man United comments will irritate Leicester.
If Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is fired, Manchester United are expected to pursue Brendan Rodgers.
Joe Cole, an icon, has explained why he is irritated by ‘comments.’
If the Foxes manager is given his marching orders, he is expected to take over at Manchester United.
Rodgers was asked about the United job ahead of Leicester’s Premier League match against Chelsea this weekend, and he didn’t rule himself out completely if the position became available.
“For starters, asking the question when there is a manager in place at the club is extremely disrespectful,” Rodgers hissed.
“Secondly, because it isn’t real, I am unable to comment on it.”
“It gives me great pleasure to be here at Leicester City.”
The only thing on my mind right now is Chelsea and how I’m going to prepare for it.”
Rodgers’ comments have opened the door for him to leave Leicester and move to the north west in the future.
And former England international Cole believes Leicester chairman Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha will be irritated that Rodgers did not put an end to the rumors.
Cole told BT Sport that when asked about the Man United job, he “came for the journalist a little bit.”
“He didn’t say I had to stay here.
If I were the chairman of Leicester, I’d be irritated.
Here, there’s still a lot of work to be done.”
Rodgers took over as Leicester manager in 2019 and guided his team to a fifth-place finish in the Premier League in his first full season in charge.
