Rodgers to respect owners’ decision after poor run of form

0 33

Brendan Rodgers will respect the decision of the owner of the club as he is on a verge to be axed after poor run if form.

Brendan Rodgers has stated that he will respect whatever decision Leicester’s owners choose to make over his future after poor run of form.

The former Liverpool manager chances of losing his job is high after Saturday’s 6-2 thrashing at the hands of Tottenham.

Leicester scored first in north London but individual errors and a continued inability to defend set pieces saw them slip to a second heavy defeat in as many games.

Rodgers conceded the statistics “don’t make great reading” for him or Leicester and admitted he is unsure whether he will still be in charge at the King Power Stadium following the upcoming international break.

“I don’t know, to be honest,” said Rodgers. “Whatever their [the owners’] decision is, I will always respect it.

“I think we’ve seen enough. I felt the team tonight, if you watched them play in the first half, you could see the confidence and creativity. It’s just cutting out mistakes.

“There is no doubt we’ve had a tough first seven games, especially after the summer we’ve had – Tottenham away, Arsenal away, Chelsea away, Manchester United at home and a couple of other games we should win.

“It [the international break] has probably come at a good time to reset everything, break the cycle from the summer as well. The owners will do what it is they feel they need to do.

“I’m not daft, I know football, and the last six games don’t make great reading. But I have every confidence the team can push on and climb the table if they play like they did in large parts and cut out mistakes.”

Rodgers has seen Leicester collect just one point from their opening seven matches of the Premier League season and conceded his side’s position at the foot of the table is his responsibility.

“Very much so,” said Rodgers when asked if the defeat increased the pressure upon him. “I come in every day and do my work, and we can see the players playing with confidence, but you’ve got to win games.

“I understand the frustrations of supporters and I can’t hide from that. It’s my responsibility.”
