Sky Sports journalist Paul Gilmore has been speaking on the latest edition of the Pitch to Post podcast ahead of Leicester City’s FA on the weekend. 

Leicester travel to Wembley Stadium on Saturday as they face Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea in the final of Cup.

The future of the Foxes’ manager, , has been the subject of much speculation in recent weeks with the 48-year-old being heavily linked with the vacant Tottenham Hotspur job.

Can you see Rodgers leaving in the next two years?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Rodgers has since played down these claims admitting his near future lies with the Foxes.

However, Gilmore has admitted he can see the Northern Irish manager moving on from Leicester in the future with a move to London a real possibility whilst discussing what a win on Saturday would do for his managerial reputation.

He said (11:43): “It [winning the FA Cup] would sort of propel him to another level if you like, he’s already well thought of, everybody knows what type of manager he is. I get the impression he is highly ambitious as well.  

“It wouldn’t surprise me if he did manage Chelsea at some point in the future, because obviously his links to Chelsea, I just wonder if he has some unfinished business there at some point in his career.”  

TIF Thoughts on Rodgers’ future…

It has been a strange Premier League season, to say the least. Former champions Liverpool are still chasing down a place in the top four of the table, and as it stands, the Foxes occupy third spot.

Rodgers has something good going on at the King Power Stadium, and if his side are able to secure a place in next season’s Champions League, then why would he want to leave?

However, it will be interesting to see what his situation is come this time next year if Leicester are unable to match this season’s heroics.
