Barcelona considering Rodgers as Koeman replacement


Barcelona are reportedly considering a move for Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers.

Since his arrival from Celtic in 2019, Rodgers has been a success at the King Power Stadium, achieving two Europa League qualification in as many seasons.

After winning back-toback SPL titles at Celtic and a variety of other trophies, Rodgers joined Leicester. He also managed to win promotion with Swansea City into the Premier League.

Even though the Foxes finished fourth last season, Rodgers is well liked at Leicester.

And it’s not just the Leicester fans Rodgers has impressed, with reports from 90min claiming he is being considered as a possible candidate for the Barcelona job.

That particular job is not currently vacant, but Ronald Koeman is under real pressure at Camp Nou, and the Blaugrana are doing their homework.

According to the report, Xavi, Andrea Pirlo, Antonio Conte and Philip Cocu are all being considered, as well as Rodgers.

It’s believed that all of those coaches fit the profile Barca are looking for, employing a suitable style of play.

Rodgers wouldn’t be the favourite, with Xavi most likely.
