Brendan Rodgers Named Leicester City Manager


Leicester City Football Club is delighted to confirm the appointment of Brendan Rodgers as its new First Team Manager.

The Northern Irishman has signed a contract until June 2022 and succeeds Claude Puel, who was sacked on Sunday after 16 months in charge.

It marks a Premier League return for Rodgers, who previously managed Liverpool and Swansea City.

"I'll give my life to make the supporters proud of their club," Rodgers said.

He watched from the stands as the Foxes beat Brighton 2-1 on Tuesday and spoke to the players in the changing room after the game.

Adding that he was "privileged and honoured" to take on the role, Rodgers said: "Together, we'll be stronger and I'm looking forward to working with the players, staff and supporters to make the right steps forward."

Neil Lennon replaces Rodgers at Celtic as interim manager until the end of the season.

Former Arsenal, Liverpool, Manchester City and Celtic defender Kolo Toure also joins Leicester as a first-team coach, having worked as a member of Rodgers' backroom staff at Celtic.
