Brendan Rogers Confirms Clause In His Deal Amid Arsenal’s Speculation
Leicester City manager, Brendan Rodgers has revealed that there is a clause in his deal with the English Premier League side that could allow him join Arsenal.

There reports that there is a £14million exit clause in Rodgers’ contract, if any club makes an attempt to sign the former Celtic coach. Rodgers have confirmed that a clause is in place.
Rodgers while speaking with reporters at Goodison Park said, there is a clause in most manager’s contracts.
“It’s all hypothetical, all these types of situations.”
“I think for me in this moment we’ve had a brilliant win today, we came back really, really well. My focus is very much with Leicester.”
“I made a change eight or nine months ago, I came into here and I’ve been so happy since I’ve come into here and I’ve been so happy to come into here to work with the players, we still have a lot of work to do.”
He noted that he has been fortunate in his coaching career to work with great teams and some great institutions.
Rodgers revealed that it was an ambition for him to come to Leicester to help the club arrive in the top six.
“For us, everything has been great since we worked together. We know there will be some bumps along the way. For me, my ambition at this very moment in time is to help this club.”
“I’m very happy in doing that, there’s great, great potential here at Leicester City in order to push on in the next few years.”
