BRENT'S BACK

Brendan Rodgers appointed Leicester manager after Claude Puel’s sacking

He's back

Brendan Rodgers sees himself as a friend first, boss second, probably an entertainer third.

And to be honest Leicester are crying out for some entertaining football after Claude Puel’s paint drying imitation.

Yes Brendan Rodgers is back in the Premier League, this time with the Foxes after Puel was sacked on Sunday following their 4-1 humbling at home to Crystal Palace.

Rodgers, despite describing Celtic as his ‘dream job’ just a few months ago, has traded the Scottish Premiership for a return to England.

It is his first top-flight job in the country since he was sacked by Liverpool in October 2015.

Rodgers came agonisingly close to delivering the Reds’ first Premier League title in 2014 before their charge collapsed in the final few games.

Now he is tasked with turning Leicester’s season around after a winless 2019 so far.

With an encouraging bedrock of young players – James Maddison, Ben Chilwell, Demarai Gray and Harvey Barnes to name but a few – it’s an attractive job.

Rodgers won seven titles in less than three years in Scotland, so can he work his magic back south of the border?

Or will his ‘character’ be lost on the Foxes?
