Leicester City Paid £9M to Prise Brendan Rodgers and Staff Out of Celtic

It has been revealed that Leicester City paid a whopping £9 million in order to prise Brendan Rodgers and his staff out of Celtic.

Rodgers decided to end his two-and-a-half year role as Hoops boss last month after accepting the Foxes’ offer of a three-year contract, and he was followed to the KP Stadium by assistants Chris Davies, Kolo Toure and Glen Driscoll.

It was reported at the time that Leicester had agreed to pay around £6 million in order to free up Rodgers,following the decision to sack
after sacking Claude Puel, who had gone seven matches without a win.

But Sky Sports are reporting that it actually cost several million pounds more to free up the entire backroom team.

Rodgers and his staff passed up the opportunity to potentially secure an historic Treble Treble at Celtic Park, and has gone on to win one and lose one of his opening two matches at Leicester.

Do you think the £9 million was money well spent?
