Leicester boss Rodgers dismisses Spurs talk

Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers has dismissed links to the Tottenham job.

Spurs are looking for a new manager after Jose Mourinho was sacked on Monday.

Rodgers has been at the King Power since February 2019 and wants to continue his work.

He said: “It's football, there is always speculation around, every job which comes up there will always be different managers speculated to go in.

“Tottenham is a fantastic club, it's a huge club but my focus is here. I'm at a world-class training facility, the project we're in here we still want to develop and have a lot of work to do.

“I have a great connection with the players, the board and we have plans to keep progressing.

“While I have the energy, the happiness and see that challenge continuing I'm very happy to be here. You can't stop gossip but I don't think about it."
