Leicester Warn Off Arsenal By Handing Brendan Rodgers New Contract

Leicester City have warned off Arsenal by handing manager Brendan Rodgers a new long-term contract.

The Northern Irish gaffer has been heavily linked with a move to the north London side following their sacking of Unai Emery.

Freddie Ljungberg is currently in charge of the Gunners on a caretaker basis, but he’s without a win in two games and it’s looking more likely that the club will appoint a manager from outside.

Rodgers emerged as a top contender because of his brilliant work with Celtic and, most recently, Leicester.

He has the Foxes sitting second in the English Premier League table, eight points behind Liverpool at the top.

And given his recent track record of improving players, he could do it again at Arsenal.

But Leicester have moved quickly to hand Rodgers a new contract, keeping him at the club until 2025 – ending all speculation with Arsenal:

That’s a huge boost to Leicester as they look to make it a memorable season under Rodgers.

As for Arsenal, they will have to turn their attention to other candidates when it comes to replacing Emery on a permanent basis.
