Speaking on Sky Sports, he said: “I deal with a few Leicester fans on social media, and they were very frustrated last season, and Leicester still finished eighth, and I kinda wonder ‘where Leicester is he supposed to finish?’

“Rodgers’ three full seasons have been two fifth places, eighth, an FA Cup and the Community Shield, which since José [Mourinho]went in, managers count that as a trophy.

“So he’ll say he’s won two trophies but where they are right now they shouldn’t be there with this team but when you listen to him I feel like he’s got it. enough.”

It comes after a difficult start to the season in which Leicester picked up just one point from six games, leaving them bottom of the Premier League table.

After losing key players such as Kasper Schmeichel and Wesley Fofana over the summer, it’s been a tough time for Rodgers but according to the boss he’s determined to fight.

Responding to Carragher’s query, Rodgers said: “That’s not the case at all, I love being here.

“I probably get a lot of questions that tire me out to be honest. But no. It’s the longest I’ve been at a club and I love being here and I will fight until my last breath to stay here and make the best team possible with what we have.

“It’s a tough time, definitely the toughest time I’ve had as a manager, but the idea is to get through it and the only way to do that is to work hard.

“That’s what you would call the hard yards now as a manager. So you have to take what’s happening to you, like about 18 months ago you get the credit, I’ve never been too high with that and I haven’t been too low with it.
