Brendan Rodgers sacked by Leicester City

Brendan Rodgers has become the latest Premier League manager to lose his job after being sacked by Leicester City.

The Foxes’ confirmed on Sunday afternoon that Rodgers had left the club after a ‘mutual agreement’ was reached between both parties. Rodgers’ departure came less than 24 hours after Leicester were beaten by Crystal Palace.

The 2-1 defeat at Selhurst Park resulted in the King Power club slipping into the bottom three with 10 games remaining. Chris Davies and Glen Driscoll have also left with Rodgers.

“Leicester City Football Club has reached a mutual agreement with Brendan Rodgers that will see him leave the Club after four years as our Men’s First Team Manager,” a statement from the Midlands club said.

The departure of Rodgers now means that every club in the bottom six of the Premier League, barring West Ham, have now sacked their manager at some point this season. The Foxes sit one place and one point behind Everton in the Premier League table, although Sean Dyche’s side do have a game in hand.

Rodgers was appointed Leicester manager after leaving his job at Celtic back in February 2019. The 50-year-old won all seven domestic trophies available to him during his time at the Scottish giants.

The Northern Irishman joined Celtic less than a year after being sacked by Liverpool. While at Anfield, Rodgers almost won the Premier League title in 2013/14, but he was dismissed following a poor run of results and performances in October 2015.
