Brendan Rodgers not thinking about Arsenal rumours

Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers insists that he is not thinking about rumours linking him to the vacant managerial position at Arsenal.

Former Gunners boss Unai Emery was sacked in the week, with Freddie Ljunberg taking temporary charge of the Gunners and overseeing a 2-2 draw with newly-promoted Norwich City on Sunday afternoon.

Current Foxes boss, Rodgers, who has his side sitting in second in the Premier League following their dramatic 2-1 victory against struggling Everton, is one of the names high in the pecking order to be appointed at the Emirates Stadium. However, the Northern-Irishman insists he is not focussing on speculation linking him with a move.

Talking to Sky Sports, Rodgers said: “I don’t think much about it [rumours]. It’s something that is not in my control, really.

“I made a move to come here eight-and-a-half months ago, and I came here to help the project and bring it forward. I’m at a great club who work how I like to work. I absolutely love it here.

“Managers lose their jobs all the time, looking to be replaced, it’s part and parcel of the game now. Names will be thrown left right and centre.

“With the Arsenal job there is probably about 10 names. But for me, my focus is very much on Leicester City.”

Rodgers can be backed at odds as high as 16/1 with William Hill to be appointed the next Arsenal boss.
