Leicester City has handed Brendan Rodgers a new five-and-a-half year contract.
The former Liverpool boss is now poised to be at King Power until June 2025, at least.
City have climbed to second in the Premier League table under Rodgers’ management
Brendan has enjoyed a hugely promising start to his Leicester career after taking over from Claude Puel in February this year.
Leicester have won 17 of 26 Premier League matches since Brendan’s appointment and currently sit second in the table after equaling a 56-year-old Club record of seven consecutive top-flight victories.
The development ends speculation that has linked him to Arsenal; with the 46-year old insisting, he is not interested in taking over the reins at the now troubled Emirates Stadium.
“When I made the decision to come to Leicester City, it was because I was excited about the direction the Club was taking and how I could apply my experience to the journey. I came here with a purpose to add something to that and to help the Club build for the future,” said the Northern Irish national moments after putting pen to paper.
The foxes travel to Villa Park on Sunday to face off with Aston Villa in a Premier League tie.
