Brendan Rodgers is set to be announced as the new manager of Leicester after the Celtic manager was spotted in the King Power Stadium where is set to replace Claude Puel who was sacked on Sunday following Leicester’s 4-1 loss to Crystal Palace.
Rodgers has been in charge of Celtic since 2016 following his sacking at Liverpool. In his first season, he guided Celtic to the treble as they bagged the Scottish Premiership, the Scottish Cup and the Scottish League Cup in the 2016-17 season.
Rodgers didn’t stop there as he repeated the same feat in the next season to secure the first ever ‘double treble’ in Scottish footballing history.
He has won the Scottish Premiership Manager of the Month on five occasions and currently holds an impressive 69% win rate at the club.
While many fans will still remember the difficulties he had at Liverpool, Rodgers has since demonstrated that he has the ability to manage at the highest level and Leicester will prove to be a suitable challenge for the Irishman.
The Foxes have endured a tough season and currently sit 12th on the log. They have managed just nine wins in 27 matches and Rodgers will be tasked with guiding them into the top 10 and making them a consistent top eight side in the future.
