Brendan Rodgers has once again distanced himself from work at Manchester United, insisting that rumors linking him to Old Trafford are “not real”.
The Leicester boss has been linked with the post in recent weeks but reiterated his commitment to the Foxes when asked about it last week.
Mauricio Pochettino has emerged as the clear leader to succeed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as permanent manager, but Paris Saint-Germain have reportedly blocked a Man United approach for Pochettino, breathing new life into Rodgers rumors.
At his press conference ahead of Leicester’s Europa League clash against Legia Warsaw, Rodgers insisted there was nothing in the rumors.
“I don’t take it for anything, it’s not real,” Rodgers said. “There is always gossip and they will be there until they appoint a full time manager.
“My commitment is here. The culture here is about player development, and that’s where I see it, even more so at this time.
“I respect that you have stories to make and to create a narrative, but that doesn’t include me.”
However, talkSPORT’s Gabby Agbonlahor believes Rodgers would be at Man United in the blink of an eye.
“He would sprint to Manchester United,” Agbonlahor told talkSPORT Breakfast. “He’s spoken out against his own fans for booing them over the weekend and it’s not going well for him there right now.
“He would love to leave. It’s not working for him there at the moment.
“I watched the game against Chelsea and they were awful. Fans were booing at halftime and he did his interview and gave fans a try, claiming they had crossed the line in recent years.
“If he had the chance to join Man United, he would jump off that ship and go straight to Old Trafford.”
