Brendan Rodgers makes ‘extraordinary donation’ to 3 British charities
Writing in the Sunday Times, Jonathan Northcroft has dropped a small piece of information regarding Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers.
In a wider article on how Leicester are helping the community during the Covid-19 crisis, readers were told:
Rodgers is said to have, personally, made “an extraordinary donation” to three British charities.
No extra details are provided, so it’s unknown how much money Rodgers donated.
However, even without these details, it’s worth shining a light on the Leicester manager’s positive contribution.

Why Leicester aren’t furloughing staff
Jonathan Northcroft has also confirmed that Leicester have decided against implementing any wage cuts at the King Power Stadium.
Moreover, the Foxes have no intention of furloughing staff. The Sunday Times confirm:
Leicester do not intend to join Tottenham Hotspur, Newcastle United, Bournemouth and Norwich City in furloughing staff — and have not sought to address their players’ pay, despite a Premier League recommendation that clubs ask players for a 30 per cent wage reduction over 12 months during the coronavirus pandemic.
Instead, following a conference call between chief executive Susan Whelan, Brendan Rodgers and senior players, the club have rolled out a series of initiatives to help their local community and the NHS.
One of those initiatives includes “making headbands for NHS staff to protect them from sores while wearing facemasks”, report the Sunday Times.
Also, Leicester are offering their staff to the NHS to help out as drivers for delivering food and other essential items.
Leicester City have also made a “substantial” donation to their local NHS.
The Foxes are also helping out other members of the community, including supporting Age UK and working with homeless organisations.
