Rodgers says talk of leaving Leicester for Arsenal ‘all hypothetical’
Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers saw his club come back for a Sunday win and second place in the Premier League, only to find himself answering questions about his future with the club.
That’s because reports claim Arsenal wants to hire Rodgers by triggering a clause in his Leicester contract that allows him to leave for a certain fee.

“Listen there probably is a clause like that in most manager’s contracts. It’s all hypothetical, all these types of situations. For me in this moment we’ve had a brilliant win today. We came back really really well and my focus is very much is Leicester. I made a change 8, 9 months ago and I’ve been so happy since I’ve been here and we still have a lot of work to do.”
“I’ve been very fortunate to work with some brilliant clubs and some great institutions. The ambition was to help the club arrive into the Top Six. And everything’s been great.... there’s great great potential here.”
It’s kind of a bummer for Leicester City supporters (and the club itself) having to deal with these questions after another memorable win, but here we are.
It would be a very snaky move, but he’s done it before.
What do you think? Does he want to leave? At Leicester he can be the guy to bring the club back to glory but he’ll never tell the best tale in club history, while at Arsenal he might be able to set a storied club back to its historic pedestal.
