Before this situation, there have been many rumors that Leicester are considering sacking Rodgers.
However, the BBC, citing sources from the Telegraph, shows that, despite a series of disastrous achievements, the leadership of the King Power Stadium team has not yet considered sacking Rodgers. Most likely, if Leicester continue to be bad in the Premier League, then the Europa Conference League championship will be a factor to help the Northern Irish captain keep his hot seat next season.
