Manchester City officials have identified current Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers as a potential replacement for Pep Guardiola, according to an exclusive report from the Sun.
Following a string of inconsistent results from Manchester City, it came as no surprise to see plenty of speculation surrounding the future of Pep Guardiola at the Etihad Stadium.
According to the Sun, Brendan Rodgers has made a ‘huge impression‘ on the hierarchy at Manchester City, following an impressive start to the season for the Foxes.
Rodgers still believes he can be a success at one of England’s ‘major clubs‘, after coming close to the Premier League title with Liverpool in 2014 – only to be denied by Manuel Pellegrini’s Manchester City.
The former Celtic and Liverpool boss has guided his Leicester City side to an impressive start to the campaign that has seen them leapfrog Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City into second place, going into the Blues’ clash with Arsenal on Sunday afternoon. The Foxes currently sit in second place on 39 points, ten points behind leaders Liverpool.
