Brendan Rodgers’ stance on replacing Solskjaer at Man Utd

Brendan Rodgers will not entertain the idea of leaving Leicester mid-season to replace Ole Gunnar Solskjaer should the Manchester United boss be sacked.

Solskjaer’s time at the club remains under huge scrutiny after their 2-0 defeat at home to rivals Manchester City last time out.

The Red Devils currently sit sixth in the Premier League table, nine points behind leaders Chelsea, with sections of the fanbase calling for Solskjaer to be sacked.

United look set to stick with the former Molde manager for now but Leicester City head coach Rodgers remains on the club’s radar.

But, according to Eurosport, Rodgers wants to see through the entire campaign with the Foxes before considering a possible move to United.

Rodgers doesn’t want to abandon his team midway through the season and believes they have a chance of further silverware in the Europa League this campaign to follow on from their FA Cup triumph last term.

United have been made aware any move they make for the manager in the coming weeks or months, should they axe Solskjaer, would likely fall on deaf ears from Leicester and Rodgers.

But, that may not stop United expressing their interest with the club confident they can tempt him away from the King Power Stadium.

The Northern Irishman was asked about the links with the United job last week and replied: ‘I don’t even think about it. I’m sure the supporters are probably tired of it. At Leicester, there is always a link.

‘My focus is always here with Leicester and developing the football club and challenging for honours. The directors, staff and players all have the same vision.’
