Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers will receive £10m if sacked

EXCLUSIVE: Brendan Rodgers will receive at least £10million in compensation if he is sacked by Leicester, with the Foxes boss under massive scrutiny after their worst start to a season since 1983

  • Leicester are currently experiencing their worst start to the season since 1983
  • The Foxes are bottom of the Premier League with one point from six games
  • Brighton topped five in a terrible performance over the weekend
  • Manager Brendan Rodgers will face an eight-figure fee if he’s fired

Brendan Rodgers will be due an eight-figure compensation package if he is sacked by Leicester after the club’s worst start to the season since 1983.

The Foxes boss is under increasing scrutiny after his team picked up just one point in their first five games. Sunday’s 5-2 loss at Brighton was their fifth straight defeat – a result which cost Claudio Ranieri his job in February 2017, nine months after he guided Leicester to their first Premier League title.

Rodgers signed a new deal in December 2019, making him the highest-paid manager in club history, running until June 2025. He is believed to hold a significant payout if released.

Rodgers has expressed frustration with the club’s lack of transfer activity over the summer. Their only outfield signing was Belgium defender Wout Faes for £15m after Wesley Fofana left for Chelsea for around five times that sum.

Foxes chairman Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha – known as Khun Top – wrote in the program ahead of last week’s home defeat to Manchester United on the importance of sustainability as the club seeks to ensure compliance with UEFA’s financial fair play rules.

Leicester’s next two games will be at home to Aston Villa – who are also struggling – and Tottenham, followed by the international break.

Aside from the team’s poor results, Rodgers’ public comments about the transfer window are believed to have caused frustration in some circles.

When asked in Brighton if he still thinks he has the support of the club hierarchy, Rodgers said: “I’ve never asked that in all my time here. I never wanted it. I will continue to do my job and come in and learn and do as much as I can.

“I never turned down the job. I’ve always gotten in early and finished late at night, and unless someone tells me otherwise, I will continue to do so.
