Revealed: How much it would cost Leicester to sack Brendan Rodgers

The Foxes will need to pay up to move their long-time boss on


An insight into the kind of financial sacrifice which would be required on the part of Premier League outfit Leicester City to part with manager Brendan Rodgers has been provided on Monday.

Speculation surrounding the future of Northern Irishman Rodgers, of course, has begun to spread across the media over the last couple of weeks.

This comes with the ex-Liverpool boss, once viewed as one of the most secure managers in the English top-flight, having seen his position called into question in a major way.

Leicester have endured something of a nightmare opening to the new campaign, en route to just a solitary point secured from an available 18.

Such a dismal haul leaves the Foxes sitting dead bottom of the Premier League table, three points from safety.

An alarming 5-2 drubbing at the hands of Brighton & Hove Albion at the weekend, in turn, saw the finger of blame once more pointed in the direction of long-time boss Rodgers, who himself recently took aim at the powers that be at the King Power Stadium over a lack of investment over the summer.

Safe to say, the situation at Leicester heading into an upcoming showdown with fellow strugglers Aston Villa is therefore a tense one.

And, should it ultimately be decided that the point of no return arrives when it comes to the Foxes’ bench, an insight into precisely how much Rodgers would be owed owing to his dismissal has been provided.

The info comes courtesy of the Daily Mail’s Sami Mokbel, who points towards a considerable payout clause becoming active in the case of the tactician’s contract being terminated prematurely.

The figure in question? £10 million.

Evidently struggling financially based on their lack of spending over the summer, Leicester’s board, as a result, will no doubt be hesitant to dismiss Rodgers until their hands are left all but tied.
