Brendan Rodgers speaks on Solskjaer’s replacement at Man United

Brendan Rodgers, the manager of Leicester City, has told journalists that he should not be considered a viable candidate for Manchester United’s Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Rodgers downplayed rumors that he is a major contender for the Red Devils’ vacant coaching position, claiming that the rumors are “not true.”

So far, the Northern Irishman has been mentioned as one of the leading possibilities for the role of director at the Theatre of Dreams.

Mauricio Pochettino, the manager of Paris Saint-Germain, has been connected with the job, as have Zinedine Zidane, Eric ten Hag of Ajax, and Luis Enrique, among others.

Rodgers, on the other hand, has ruled himself out of contention for the post, insisting that the rumors are “not true.”

Asked about United’s apparent interest, Rodgers told reporters ahead of Leicester City Europa League game on Thursday, “I don’t take it as anything. It’s not real. There’s always gossip and that will be there until they appoint a full-time manager.

“My commitment is to here. The culture here is about the development of the players, and that’s where I see it, even moreso in this period.

“I respect you guys have stories to do and to create a narrative, but that doesn’t include me.”
