Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers will be “angry” at his side’s start to the season, with the East Midlands club sitting bottom of the Premier League after six games.
That is according to Dean Jones, who was speaking to GIVEMESPORT about the latest news from the King Power Stadium.
Rodgers’ side remains winless after the first six league games of the season, with the club rooted to the bottom of the Premier League after earning a solitary point from a possible 18.
Their most recent game was a 5-2 defeat at Brighton & Hove Albion, which further highlighted their defensive frailties ahead of this weekend’s home fixture with Aston Villa.
The former Celtic manager has had a tremendously successful spell in charge of the Foxes, leading the club to two fifth-placed finishes, a Europa Conference League semi-final, and a first-ever FA Cup triumph in 2021, but is now under serious pressure for the first time in his tenure at Leicester, since his appointment in 2019.
And Jones believes that the club’s current run of form is the “most troubled” time Rodgers has had in the dugout for a long time.
“It’s probably the most troubled period he’s had in a very long time”, Jones told GIVEMESPORT.
“You can see in his face that he is very frustrated and he’s probably quite angry with the way that all of this has fallen apart beneath him.
“Some of it has been within his control, some of it definitely not.”
TIF Thoughts on Jones’ comments
We believe that there is a strong chance that the upcoming fixtures with Aston Villa and Tottenham Hotspur could define Rodgers’ future in the Leicester dugout.
Do you think Rodgers will be sacked during international break?
Following these two fixtures, there is an international break meaning that the club will not have a Premier League fixture for almost two weeks, suggesting that if they are going for a change of approach, that would be the ideal time.
Therefore, we think that these are incredibly worrying times for Rodgers, who will not have suffered job scrutiny like this since his last days as Liverpool manager.
