Brendan Rodgers admits Leicester aren’t a ‘stable’ club at the moment in ALARMING press conference ahead of Manchester United clash… and highlights a lack of transfer deals this summer, while saying they need to ‘beat the drum together’ in order to be successful

  • Brendan Rodgers admitted Leicester are not a ‘stable’ club at the moment
  • Rodgers had hoped to undertake a significant revamp at the club this summer
  • But he has made efforts to sack unwanted players, adding only one signing
  • Leicester are bottom of the Premier League with one point from four games

Brendan Rodgers said in an alarming press conference ahead of Thursday’s clash with Manchester United that Leicester City are not a stable club at the moment.

The Foxes are bottom in the Premier League with one point from their first four games.

Rodgers, who has been at the club since February 2019, had been hoping for a significant rebuild this summer but he has only signed backup goalkeeper Alex Smithies so far.

Similarly, the Northern Ireland failed to move several unwanted stars as only Kasper Schmeichel and Hamza Choudhury left the King Power stadium this summer.

There is also interest in many of his key players including Youri Tielemans, Harvey Barnes and James Maddison, all of whom are being linked with a move from the club this summer.

Tielemans is in the last year of his contract and is keen to leave the club but the Foxes are yet to receive an offer they see fit for the Belgian but this has only added to instability at King Power.

The upcoming £70million sale of Wesley Fofana to Chelsea is likely to give Rodgers at least some leeway and finance to maneuver in the final days of the transfer window.

However, the Leicester boss has shown his frustration at the club’s lack of business so far this summer and admitted all was not well behind the scenes.

Rodgers said, “I think I mentioned before that any development environment needs to be stable. Our stability is not there.

“That will change when the window closes. There are players who might have thought they were going to continue, but they aren’t. We couldn’t get players to improve.

“And then there are players in the final years of their contracts. We must beat the drum together.

However, Rodgers believes things will get easier when the window slams shut at 11pm UK time on Thursday.

He said: “We have talented players but nothing counts if it’s not done together. When the window closes, it should calm down.’
