Leicester City-oriented journalist Rob Tanner has been sharing his thoughts on Foxes manager Brendan Rodgers and his future with the Midlands club. 

This comes after Tanner made an appearance on a recent episode of The Athletic’s Ornstein & Chapman Podcast where he spoke about a variety of topics concerning the club.

Nice easy one to start off with, who currently sits top of the ?

On the subject of Rodgers and his future in charge of the Foxes, Tanner had something to say about the issue(31.49) (32.54).

He said: “He’s a winner. He’s got a piece of silverware, but he won’t be happy to rest on his laurels on that, he wants to get in the Champions League, he wants to take them as far as he can, he wants to see Leicester City consistently competing for silverware over a number of years and when he no longer sees that challenge, he’ll move on, that’s a reality, he’ll move on, but he will back himself to get a bigger job.

“I can’t see him moving anytime soon, but I think the day will come when a big job comes in, I think he’d love the Barcelona job. I think he’d see that as the ultimate one.”

Leicester appointed Rodgers as their manager back in February 2019 and the 48-year-old has since gone on to take charge of 109 matches with the Foxes across all competitions in which they have won 60, drawn 19 and lost 30 in the process, prior to their midweek Premier League showdown against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

TIF Thoughts on Rob Tanner’s comments on Rodgers and his future at Leicester…

Given how Leicester have managed win more points with each season they’ve had since Rodgers took over, as well as recently winning the FA Cup, this shows that Rodgers’ time with the Foxes has been fairly successful.

Moving forward, if Rodgers can end this Premier League season in the top four, this would surely be another massive positive for the club.

Is Brendan Rodgers the right to take Leicester forward?

Yes

Yes

No

No

In our view, if Leicester want to continue this progression they’ve had under Rodgers so far, they should not be thinking about letting him leave anytime soon.
