Leicester City boss Brendan Rogers has his say on being linked with the Arsenal job following Unai Emery’s sacking, according to the Daily Express.
Emery was sacked by Arsenal earlier today following a terrible run of form, that saw the Gunners winless in their last seven matches.
Foxes boss Rodgers was linked to the Arsenal job, even before Emery left the post following his successful stint with Celtic and the current brilliant football he has his Leicester City side playing.
The Midlands team now sit in 2nd position in the Premier League and are widely regarded as the closest challengers to leaders Liverpool for the Premier League title.
Rodgers had his say on the Arsenal situation and his feelings:
“I think exactly the same as I always have done: it’s something that naturally happens.
“When you’re doing ok, people want to take you away from something that you really enjoy. If you’re not linked then it doesn’t matter.
“It’s always the case, whenever jobs come up, there’s always a number of names.
“I’ve said a number of times that we’re at the beginning of something here. I’ve absolutely loved every minute since I came here and have a good relationship with the people that run the club.
“My relationship with the players is really strong and it feels as if we’re beginning something really exciting.
“This is a game where there is so much gossip and speculation around many things and obviously people’s roles and people’s jobs are one of them.
“I’m experienced enough now to take it with a pinch of salt.
“It’s a sign that we’re working well, but that’s all it is. That’s just how the game works.”
