Rodgers in frame for Arsenal job


Former Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers could be set for a return to the Premier League.

That’s according to a report by The Telegraph, in which they claim that Arsenal have placed the Celtic boss on their shortlist of candidates to succeed Arsene Wenger.

Rodgers has had a successful spell in charge of the Scottish club since taking over at Celtic Park back in the Summer of 2016 after being sacked by Liverpool in October 2015.

The Northern Irishman will face plenty of competition for the position, if indeed it becomes available, from the likes of Monaco manager Leonardo Jardim, Germany coach Joachim Low and Manchester City assistant Mikel Arteta – who used to play for the Gunners under Wenger.

Rodgers won the Scottish Premier League title in his first season and is on course to retain the trophy this year. He also secured the Scottish Cup in his first campaign and has won the Scottish League Cup in both seasons.

The former Swansea City boss has done just about everything he can expect to in Scottish football already, having won the domestic treble last season, and so could be tempted into a return south of the border.

It would certainly be interesting to see what kind of reception he receives from Liverpool supporters if he does come back to Anfield as an opposition manager.
