Leicester: Journalist drops significant Brendan Rodgers update

Leicester: Journalist drops significant Brendan Rodgers update -Leicester City News

Leicester City are set to give Brendan Rodgers more time at the helm to turn results around, according to journalist Jordan Blackwell.

The Lowdown: Under increasing pressure

The Foxes went into the international break at the very bottom of the Premier League after taking just one point from 21, with this hugely disappointing start piling pressure onto the 49-year-old.

After the 6-2 defeat at the hands of Tottenham, Fabrizio Romano revealed that the hierarchy were set to hold internal discussions regarding his future, but as it stands, he is still very much in charge at the King Power Stadium.

The Latest: Blackwell’s update

Asked during a Leicester Mercury Q&A whether Rodgers would be sacked if his side lose to Nottingham Forest on Monday, Blackwell responded:

“The suggestions I have heard from sources are that he will be given a chunk of games, but I think Monday’s game will be significant.

“In the event of a defeat, I suspect the atmosphere will be the worst in recent memory at the King Power Stadium, and I don’t think the hierarchy would ignore that.”

The Verdict: Time for a change

Rodgers will go down as a hero having given supporters the memories of lifting both the FA and Super Cup trophies, but now is the right time for a change in the dugout.

The Northern Irishman hasn’t won a league game with the Foxes since May, and if the board don’t make a decision soon, it might end up being too late where the season becomes unsalvageable.

Reports have suggested that it could cost the club £10m to part ways with Rodgers, but paying him off is vital if they want to get Leicester back on track again.
