Leicester City manager, Brendan Rodgers, has said he cannot comment on replacing Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at Manchester United, because it is disrespectful.

Rodgers has been linked with the Old Trafford job, with Solskjaer under intense scrutiny in recent weeks.

However, he insists there is no truth to suggestions he would leave the King Power Stadium and hisonly focus is on preparing Leicester for their next game – at home to Chelsea on Saturday.

Addressing the speculation, Rodgers said: “There’s two things. Firstly, it’s really disrespectful for you to ask the question when you have a manager [Ole Gunnar Solskjaer] in place, a good manager and a good man, who is working for the club.

“Secondly, I can’t really comment on it because it is something that is not real. I am here as the Leicester City manager, I’m proud to be here, privileged to be here and fully committed to the players, the club, the ownership.
