Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers has declared that he is not worried about the ongoing speculation linking him with the potential vacancy at Manchester United. Rodgers has reportedly emerged as the priority choice to replace Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at Old Trafford if the latter is relieved of his duties in the near future.

Solskjaer currently finds himself under extreme pressure at United following Sunday’s embarrassing five-goal defeat at the hands of Liverpool.

Club chiefs are said to have discussed the possibility of sacking the 48-year-old, but he is expected to remain in charge for Saturday’s meeting with Tottenham in north London.

However, United’s hierarchy are believed to be drawing up a list of potential replacements in the event of Solskjaer failing to turn things around.

Rodgers is among the names under consideration after a hugely progressive spell in charge of Leicester to date, according to ESPN.

He was quizzed on the possibility of joining United on Friday but reiterated his commitment to his current employers, with the Foxes boss insisting that he will be going nowhere.

“I don’t even think about it,” Rodgers told reporters at his press conference.

“I’m sure the supporters are probably tired of it. At Leicester, there is always a link.

“My focus is always here with Leicester and developing the football club and challenging for honours.

“The directors, staff and players all have the same vision.”
