Leicester 'admire' two managers as Brendan Rodgers on brink of sack after Tottenham loss

3 mins read

Leicester City supposedly have their eye on Thomas Frank and Sean Dyche with Brendan Rodgers’ position as boss coming under increasing pressure. A second-half capitulation against Tottenham on Saturday consigned the Foxes to the foot of the Premier League table after six defeats in a row. 

Rodgers’ side fought an even contest in the first half as goals from Youri Tielemans and James Maddison levelled the scores up at 2-2. Spurs found another gear after the break, however, with Rodrigo Bentancur’s finish preceding a superb Heung-min Son hat-trick to leave Leicester scratching their heads at a damning 6-2 scoreline. 

It means the Foxes have now conceded 11 goals in their last two Premier League games, having been hammered by Brighton earlier this month. Despite all he has achieved at the King Power Stadium, Rodgers finds himself under renewed pressure with the Leicester hierarchy sure to be weighing up their options. 

Among them is Brentford boss Thomas Frank and former Burnley manager Sean Dyche, according to The Telegraph.

“There’s no doubt in the first seven games, we’ve had a tough start,” admitted Rodgers. “Especially after the summer that we have had. Tottenham away, Arsenal away, Chelsea away and Manchester United at home. [The international break] has probably come at a good time to reset everything and break the cycle of the summer.

“The owners will do what it is that they feel they need to do. I’m not daft – I know football. Losing the last six games doesn’t make great reading. I’ve every confidence that the team can push on and if they play like they did for large parts of this, we’ll climb higher in table.”
