​Rodgers to help Leicester search for recruitment chief

Brendan Rodgers will help Leicester City find a new head of recruitment.

The club want to find a replacement for Eduardo Macia, who is leaving after two and a half years in the post. One name linked is Lee Congerton from Celtic.

And Rodgers has admitted he will be involved in the process of finding the right person.

He said during his press conference: "I'm sure they'll be a number of candidates. I will be involved. It will be a club appointment but it is important the manager is involved.

"When I first came in, this was something that I was made aware. It was something that was pre-Christmas, that Eduardo was going to move on.

"He wants a fresh challenge but is a really good guy, the club will go through the process of finding a replacement."
