Leicester: Rodgers 'won't accept what's going on' at the King Power Stadium
The Foxes got the new campaign underway with a 2-2 draw against Brentford, but it was seen as two points dropped after failing to hold onto a two-goal lead.
What’s the latest news involving Rodgers and Leicester?
According to Football Insider, Rodgers is fighting for his job amid tense relations with club chiefs behind the scenes.
The report suggests the 49-year-old, who was appointed as Leicester’s boss in February 2019, is unhappy that he has not been backed by the club hierarchy and they, in turn, have major doubts over his long-term position.
Rodgers has been unable to add any fresh faces to his squad during the summer transfer window due to having to offload players first.
What has Michael Bridge said about the situation?
Bridge has hinted that Rodgers will not be happy with how the transfer window has gone and, as a result, could be assessing his options.
The Sky Sports reporter feels the departures of Maddison, Fofana and Tielemans after already sanctioning Schmeichel’s exit would not look good for the Leicester chief.
Bridge told GIVEMESPORT: “There’s two things that could happen to James Maddison. He either signs a new contract or he goes. He’s got two years left and there’s no way Leicester are going to leave it with one.
“I’m getting to the stage where I just don’t see Brendan Rodgers accepting what’s going on at the club.
“He can be as calm as he likes in press conferences, but they’ve lost Schmeichel, Wesley Fofana is being linked with Chelsea, Tielemans could go and if he loses Maddison it’s not a good look for him.”
How have Leicester performed under Rodgers?
Since Rodgers’ appointment at the King Power Stadium, Leicester have secured 84 wins in 170 matches.
He also wrote his name into the history books by securing the Foxes’ first-ever FA Cup and followed that success up by clinching the Community Shield.
However, last season proved to be a low point during Rodgers’ reign as, having enjoyed back-to-back fifth place finishes, Leicester came eighth in the standings, missing out on European qualification.
