Former Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has said that he will never manage rivals Manchester United.
The Northern Irishman has been out of work since he was sacked by the club back in October, before being replaced by Jürgen Klopp, and has recently begun appearing publicly following a period of quiet.
He was linked with a return to Swansea City when the job became available there, but he did not consider it the right time for a return to the Welsh side.
He was asked by Talksport what his future plans are and he said that the chance to manage at Old Trafford was now gone thanks to being a former Liverpool boss.
“When you manage Liverpool, you know the Manchester United job is gone.” he said.
It will not come as a disappointment to United fans that Rodgers has ruled himself out of contention to replace Louis van Gaal when the Dutchman leaves the Premier League club.
Rodgers has spoken about managing abroad during his career and his ability to speak Spanish would put him in good stead should a chance in La Liga come calling.
But he won’t be pitching up at Old Trafford to bring the attacking football their supporters are demanding from their side.
