We recently made the case that Rodgers would be the perfect man to succeed Maurizio Sarri, when the Italian inevitably departs Chelsea. Whilst his tenure has been short, most Chelsea managers don’t last more than a few years, by which point Rodgers may be open to leaving Celtic.
Of course, Rodgers began his career at Stamford Bridge in the youth system, and it would complete the full circle if he were to return to the coaching pyramid at the club.
It’s a move, however, that has divided fans. We recently asked Chelsea supporters whether Rodgers would be a good replacement for Sarri, and though a majority have voted that he would, it was incredibly close.
52% of those polled are behind the idea, whilst 48% responded more negatively.
Clearly, then, Rodgers is a divisive man amongst supporters, and it’s easy to see why.
Whilst some will have been impressed by his work at Swansea City, Liverpool, and now Celtic, many others are evidently less interested in what he’s achieved up north, and instead perhaps are concerned about the way his time at Anfield ended.
In truth, Rodgers ticks a lot of boxes for a potential Chelsea manager, and he would perhaps prove to be a good appointment.
