Foxes of Leicester offer opinion and insight as the apparent length of Brendan Rodgers’ career as Leicester City boss is discussed.

I think a large number of fans feel more comfortable with the idea of Rodgers continuing as Leicester manager now that the appropriate signings have finally been made. The LCFC gaffer is entering his fourth year on Filbert Way. But it wasn’t long ago that many of us called for his sacking.

The pre-Christmas Premier League rampage covered for such a terrible start to the 2022/23 campaign. Although, there were more disappointing results following the World Cup hiatus.

Nevertheless, talk over the Northern Irishman’s tenure has returned. After the furore of the transfer market ceased, FoL noticed an article on Rodgers’ contract situation from a week or so ago:

"Brendan Rodgers is determined to take his Leicester City reign to six full seasons with the Northern Irishman looking forward to overseeing a rebuild at the club.The City boss, who celebrated his 50th birthday on Thursday, says he’s committed to fulfilling the remaining two-and-a-half years of his contract at the King Power Stadium, and is excited by what can be achieved before it expires in the summer of 2025.Via LCFC Live"

It’s no surprise that Leicester City star James Maddison is desired at the very top

Leicester’s best assets are perpetually connected with transfers away from King Power Stadium. And those players are often directly linked to particularly prominent clubs here and around the eminent five divisions of mainland Europe. The Blue Army is no stranger to this; targeting really ramped up almost seven years ago after the Premier League title was secured in the 2015/16 season. Sometimes the sales are a blessing in disguise – see Danny Drinkwater for an example.

When it comes to James Maddison, the equally swaggering and productive Foxes playmaker, he is reportedly wanted by arguably two of the handful of teams that will dominate the foreseeable future of the Premier League: Manchester City and Newcastle United. Of course, Newcastle haven’t done anything yet, really. Though we can all agree that, considering their astute planning and mega backing, the Magpies are probably here to stay at the apex. Chelsea want to complete that trio of influencers, although Arsenal and Manchester United have rebuilt fantastically, too.

Nevertheless, I see MCFC, NUFC and CFC attempting to command and control the market by continuing to attract the supposedly most talented athletes. Maddison falls into that very category, irrespective of any transgressions or immaturity in the past. As a Foxes fan myself, I don’t want to see ‘Madders’ leave, at all. However, he would suit the Citizens right down to the ground. Maddison would potentially fit Pep Guardiola’s system and the elite surroundings like a glove.
