Rodgers, latest manager to end Man United speculation: ‘Leicester is my engagement’

But any feeling that Rodgers, 48, was interested in the Old Trafford siege was dismissed on Wednesday.

He said: “It’s not real. There is always gossip and they will be there until they appoint a full time director.

“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 questions to ask, but that doesn’t include me. “

Paris Saint-Germain coach Mauricio Pochettino is United’s main target but he also distanced himself when asked earlier this week. The Red Devils are said to be questioning candidates such as former Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde for the interim post.

Leicester are preparing to face Legia Warsaw in the Europa League on Thursday and could find themselves out of the competition if they lose at the King Power Stadium.

Of his team’s inconsistent start to the season, Rodgers noted, “I understand the frustrations, but I’m just asking for a little perspective.

“We have to be together. King Power Stadium is a really tough place to play when there is synergy between the fans and the players. Bring this incredible passion and support to help the team, and we need it because we have to win to jump up the leaderboard. We need them – and for us, rather than against us.
