Prior to that FA Cup triumph over Chelsea, ex-Leicester defender Danny Simpson, speaking on talkSPORT, claimed that Rodgers was good enough to sit in any dugout in world football. And it is a sentiment that Deane shares.
Is Rodgers a Leicester great?
Every day of the week!
Needs to do more
Reacting to Simpson’s comments, the retired Premier League forward told TIF:
“Yeah, I agree, one hundred percent. I’ve been a big fan. I think he’s the best British manager that we have and that means that I think he could go abroad and replicate what he’s done.
“Certainly, I think he could go to Spain, manage one of the big clubs out there, because of the style of football, because of how intelligent he is. I don’t think he’d have any problems.”
Given Leicester’s standing in English football right now, though, it is hard to see why Rodgers would even contemplate leaving the King Power.
