Leicester boss Rodgers snaps at 'really disrespectful' reporter over Man Utd questions

Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers snapped at reporters yesterday over questions about Manchester United's interest.

Rodgers has been touted as a possible replacement for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer should the Norwegian get the sack at Old Trafford.

But the former Liverpool manager turned on a reporter ahead of Saturday's clash with Chelsea for posing a question asking if he was potentially interested in the role when Solskjaer was still in charge, insisting the speculation "is not real".

He said: "There's two things. Firstly it is really disrespectful to ask the question when you have a manager in place, a good manager and a good man, who is working hard at the club.

"Secondly I can't really comment on it, because it is not something that is real.

"I am here as the Leicester City manager, proud to be here, privileged to be here and fully committed to the players, the club, the ownership. That's about it, all the other noise around that is something we can't control."
