Brendan Rodgers has reportedly declined the chance to speak with Tottenham over the vacant managerial position after being identified by Daniel Levy the role. The Foxes boss is now Tottenham’s first-choice option to replace Jose Mourinho, after it was confirmed yesterday that Bayern Munich had reached an agreement with Julian Nagelsmann to take over at the Allianz Arena next season.
Rodgers has previously been considered for the position back in 2013 before he joined Liverpool from Swansea.
The Northern Irishman’s stock dipped upon his dismissal at Anfield but he is now a man in demand following his impressive work at both Celtic and Leicester respectively.
However, according to Sky Sports, Rodgers has decided that he isn’t interested in speaking to Tottenham about the vacant.
He is said to believe his side can only improve as he targets regular European qualification.
