Brendan Rodgers' odds slashed to become next Leicester City manager

Brendan Rodgers' odds slashed to become next Leicester City manager

The Celtic boss becomes the market favourite to take over at the King Power Stadium.

After his trophy wins with Celtic north of the border, Brendan Rodgers has been linked with a number of jobs back in England and it appears that a move back to the Premier League could be imminent.

Leicester City are still managed by Claude Puel but rumours are rife that the Foxes could be changing their manager over the summer and as it stands, the Celtic boss is favourite to take over.

Last night you could have got 20/1 on the 45-year-old making the switch, but those odds have been tumbling all day. 

Now, Rodgers is the 3/1 best price favourite to go to Leicester, way ahead of Rafa Benitez, who is second in the market at 15/2.

He’s being backed by punters too, with 57% of total bets in the last 24 hours going on Rodgers, who could fancy a new challenge after winning the ‘Double Treble’ with Celtic.

If he does join Leicester, then he will become the clubs third permanent manager since the departure of the title-winning Claudio Ranieri.

Oddschecker Spokesman George Elek: “Brendan Rodgers has rebuilt his reputation fantastically at Celtic and the Leicester job could well appeal for the Northern Irishman. The Foxes weren’t unanimously happy at points in the last campaign and if they decide to part company with Claude Puel, Rodgers’ attacking style could appeal with fans and players alike.”
