Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers has quelled speculations linking him with the Manchester United job amid uncertainty over manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s future.

The Foxes boss has made it clear he has no interest in taking up the job despite being one of the front-runners to replace the Norwegian.

In fact, Rodgers has claimed he is only focusing on winning silverware for the Foxes.

“I don’t even think about it,” Rodgers said on Friday. “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.’

“We need a reaction,” he said. “It’s my job to put the players in the right frame of mind.”

“I’m responsible for the reaction, result and performance. We’ve worked on everything on the pitch that needs to be sorted for a footballer.

“We’ve had a good week and I feel that the boys are ready to give their best, as they always do.

“Nothing went to plan [against Liverpool] and that was nowhere near our best.”
