UEFA Champions League winning manager interested to replace Brendan Rodgers at Leicester City

Former Liverpool and Real Madrid manager Rafael Benitez is interested in succeeding Brendan Rodgers if Leicester City fire the Northern Irishman.

According to the broadcaster Richard Keysthe Spaniard has made contact with Leicester City to potentially replace Brendan Rodgers.

The Foxes have had a dismal start to the season in which they are lowest in the Premier League with six defeats in their opening seven league games.

There is now enormous pressure on Brendan Rodgers, whose job at King Power Stadium is in jeopardy.

The former Liverpool manager oversaw an FA Cup victory in 2021, but Leicester have since fallen out of favor.

Meanwhile, Benitez has been out of control since being sacked by Everton last season.

The Spaniard failed to deliver success at Goodison Park, managing just seven wins, four draws and 11 losses in 22 games in charge.

Benitez won the Champions League and Europa League with Liverpool and Chelsea respectively.

He took charge of 350 games while the Liverpool manager won 197, drew 74 and lost 79.

Benitez was in charge of Stamford Bridge for 48 games, winning 28, drawing 10 and losing as many.

The Spaniard also had stints at Real Madrid, Napoli and Newcastle United. He now seems to be looking for his next club.
