Watford don't expect Rodgers to ring Leicester changes

Watford don't expect Rodgers to ring Leicester changes

Rodgers - who suffered a 2-1 defeat to Watford in his first game in charge of the club on Sunday - will not be fazed should one of the "big six" make an offer for the 26-year-old.

Rodgers brought to an end his two-and-a-half year stay at Celtic last week, having moved back to the Premier League with Leicester City.

Supporters were unsure what the departure would do to their league and Scottish Cup campaigns, but Oliver Burke has claimed that he felt no disappointment in Rodgers' exit.

The Foxes leveled in the 75 minute as striker Jamie Vardy outpaced Leicester's defense to slot home calmly, setting up a tense finale.

The Northern Irishman signed a contract with the Premier League club until June 2022 after winning back-to-back trebles with Celtic while putting the club on track for another trophy-filled season this campaign.




And while Rodgers may be looking for support from his closest confidants, former boss Mourinho yesterday revealed his true feelings on the matter. But the biggest challenge for Rodgers will be his relationship with the club's senior players.

Rodgers took over in the same role for Leicester City last week. We've talked about maybe being a bit more streetwise.

"We are still in the hunt, that is something I made clear to the players in the dressing room afterwards", he said, speaking to the Lancashire Evening Post.

This was then followed up in the following game against Hibernian in the Scottish Cup, a banner this time reading: 'Cups are not won by individuals but by men in a team - who put their club before personal prestige'. Yes I appreciate they pay more money so can get in more quality, but that's a fact.
