Brentford manager Thomas Frank is Leicester’s No 1 choice if they decide to sack boss Brendan Rodgers, according to reports.

The Northern Irishman is under heavy pressure after six successive defeats, including a 6-2 loss against Tottenham on Saturday left the Foxes marooned at the bottom of the Premier League table after their worst start to a season since 1983.
And The Sun claim that highly-rated Dane Frank is top of their list of potential replacements if Rodgers gets the axe.
The club are weighing up whether to stick or twist given it will cost more than £10million to sack him and they must abide by Financial Fair Play regulations.
Only Manchester City’s Pep Guardiola, Liverpool’s Jurgen Klopp and Tottenham’s Antonio Conte earn more than Rodgers’ £10m-a-year salary on a lucrative contract which runs until 2025 and has him as the highest-paid manager in club history.
But given the club’s financial struggles, with only £15m spent this summer on defender Wout Faes and a reported annual loss of £120m set to be announced, there are questions over whether the Midlands side can afford a costly severance package.
Rodgers said after the resounding Spurs defeat: ‘I know how football works and I totally understand the frustration of the supporters. I cannot hide from that because it’s my responsibility.
