Brendan Rodgers is the new Leicester City Manager
Congratulations to Brendan Rodgers who today signed a 3 year contract to become the new manager of Leicester City Football Club.
KeySports have worked hard and quick to bring Rodgers to the King Power Stadium after Claude Puel left the role on the weekend.
Rodgers has also brought with him his Celtic assistants Chris Davies, Glen Driscoll and Kolo Toure. Both Chris and Glen were part of Brendan’s backroom team at Liverpool.
Brendan’s coaching record speaks for itself, initially the Irishman spent his formative coaching years at Chelsea’s Academy where he spent a lot of time travelling around Europe studying different coaching methods. Subsequently he developed a reputation of a methodical approach to coaching and preparation to games.
His next move was to Watford and then Reading before settling in South Wales for two years with Swansea City. Under his stewardship, the Swans won promotion to become the first Welsh club to play in the Premier League and better still they finished that season in a healthy 11th place, all whilst playing attractive free-flowing football.
His achievements at Swansea made Liverpool make him their manager in 2012. He managed the Anfield team for 4 seasons, narrowly missing out on the title in 2013/14.
Then in 2016 he became the manager of Scottish Giants Celtic and the rest, as they say, is history.
In his first season at the club he lead the hoops to an undefeated season and went onto to secure a ‘Double Treble’ by winning trebles in his first two seasons at the club.
Brendan has won a total of 7 trophies during his Celtic Park career, add the multiple individual awards he has won, you can clearly see that Leicester have got their hands on a top, top manager.
We have been pleased to work with Brendan and his team to secure the move to Leicester and we can’t wait to see him work his magic and get the Foxes firing again.
