Leeds United could turn to Brendan Rodgers this summer as the man to guide us back into the Premier League, if Leeds suffer relegation – a manager that underlined his disappointment at failing to strike a deal for Jack Harrison.
The Athletic claim that if Leeds stay up, the club will go after a boss in the same ilk as Graham Potter. Relegation, and a manager like Rodgers will be targeted. If Rodgers would join a Championship side, is currently not known.
But Rodgers is a target for Leeds with relegation now looking more than likely. Sitting in 19th place in the Premier League table, Leeds need Everton to lose, Leicester to fail to win and a win over Spurs in order to obtain safety.
Incredibly unlikely. A weekend in which Leeds lost, but Forest won – and Everton and Leicester picked up a point each. Rodgers would be a wonderful appointment, if Leeds do go down. A boss with a winning mentality, and titles.
Promotion with Swansea, seven trophies with Celtic, an FA Cup with Leicester. He would be a stunning appointment. A manager that declared himself frustrated, or disappointed, when a move for Jack Harrison fell through in January.
“It was surprising he was available in the first place.Ahen the deal gets to where it did, of course it’s [disappointing]. But we’re really happy with the players we did bring in,” Leicester boss Rodgers said, as per BBC Sport Leicester.
Leeds could turn to Rodgers: Disappointed not to strike Harrison deal
While Rodgers would surely feel like he is a manager that is deserving to coach again in the Premier League, a move to the Championship and the chance to take Leeds back into the Premier League – with a blank canvas, is tempting.
A chance to reinvigorate a massive club that belongs in the Premier League. This is of course, Leeds end up being relegated – with survival still possible. Maybe, the chance to work with Harrison will tempt Rodgers to remain.
But, if Leeds go down, you would argue that Harrison will be on his way this summer. The Athletic report that the new contract Harrison recently signed includes a relegation release clause, which will obviously come into play.
