Brendan Rodgers to respect decision if owners choose to make managerial change

Brendan Rodgers insists he will respect whatever decision Leicester’s owners choose to make over his future after pressure on his position as manager was increased yet again with Saturday’s 6-2 thrashing at the hands of Tottenham.

The Foxes took an early lead in north London but individual errors and a continued inability to defend set pieces saw them slip to a second heavy defeat in as many games.

Rodgers conceded the statistics “don’t make great reading” for him or Leicester and admitted he is unsure whether he will still be in charge at the King Power Stadium following the upcoming international break.

“I don’t know, to be honest,” said Rodgers. “Whatever their [the owners’] decision is, I will always respect it.

“There is no doubt we’ve had a tough first seven games, especially after the summer we’ve had – Tottenham away, Arsenal away, Chelsea away, Manchester United at home and a couple of other games we should win.

“It [the international break] has probably come at a good time to reset everything, break the cycle from the summer as well. The owners will do what it is they feel they need to do.

“I’m not daft, I know football, and the last six games don’t make great reading. But I have every confidence the team can push on and climb the table if they play like they did in large parts and cut out mistakes.”
