Rodgers reveals Leicester players meeting over Man Utd rumours

Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers has assured his players amid talk of interest from Manchester United.

Rodgers has been proactive in ensuring the rumours don't add another unnecessary distraction.

"I spoke to our leadership group," confirmed Rodgers, who is one of several managers mentioned as a candidate to succeed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. "I hear the bits and pieces, so it stabilises everything.

"There can be lots of things going on, speculation, and I normally don't even think about it, but I understand it may have a bearing on other people.

"It was a case of just giving some stability and speaking to the senior guys. They know our commitment to the club."
