EPL: Leicester City sack Manager Brendan Rodgers


Leicester City have sacked Brendan Rodgers as their manager, with the club in danger of suffering relegation this summer.

Rodgers was sacked a day after their 2-1 defeat at Crystal Palace. The result saw the Foxes slip into the bottom three with 10 games remaining.

On Sunday, Leicester announced that a “mutual agreement” had been reached with the 50-year-old, who had been in charge since February 2019.

Rodgers leaves with coaches Chris Davies and Glen Driscoll.

This means goalkeeping coach Mike Stowell and first-team coach Adam Sadler will take charge of their fixture against Aston Villa at King Power Stadium on Tuesday.

Rodgers led the club to consecutive fifth-placed finishes in 2020 and 2021 and won the FA Cup for the first time in their history two years ago.
