The Lowdown: Foxes fumble…
Over their first seven matches, Leicester have also conceded more goals and lost more games than any other team in the league, something which will be of deep concern for Rodgers, who is now under pressure.
The 49-year-old is at the centre of questions over his managerial future in the Midlands, coming just over a year after he guided the Foxes to FA Cup and Community Shield success at Wembley.
The Latest: Rodgers set points target…
Speaking to GiveMeSport, Jacobs has claimed that the Leicester board have a plan regarding Rodgers’ immediate future at the King Power Stadium.
He explained: “My understanding is that Rodgers has been told that it’s Forest, Bournemouth, and Palace, and the expectation is that Leicester take, I would say, at least six points from those three games.
“Fans may argue that seven points on paper is essential, but I think the board wants to see a run. They want to see those three games catalyse something. If Rodgers can’t get to the end of Palace on October the 15th with those points in the bag, then I think he’s in big, big trouble and the writing will be on the wall because he’ll have been given time.”
The Verdict: Right call?
Taking into account Leicester’s previous success under Rodgers, we believe it is only fair that the former Celtic boss is given enough time to turn the tide.
They arguably have enough quality to turn things around, with the likes of Youri Tielemans and James Maddison in particular standing out as a potentially crucial players.
It would be a sad end for Rodgers to be unceremoniously sacked after achieving such highs at the King Power Stadium, so hopefully there will be an upturn in fortunes soon.
