Profile

Brendan Rodgers is now managing Leicester City after leaving his post at Celtic in February 2019.

Rodgers' playing career was cut short at the age of just 20 due to a leg injury he sustained while at Reading. The Ulsterman chose to stay on at the club and gained valuable experience as a coach, until moving onto Chelsea where he worked under Jose Mourinho as the reserve team manager.

Rogders' first job as manager came at Championship club Watford, but he was only there for six months after opting to join Reading in the summer of 2009. But, he didn't last much longer with the Royals, leaving the club just six months later after a dissapointing string of results.

Rodgers returned to the dugout with Swansea in July 2010, and at the first time of asking he led the club to promotion to the Premier League - finishing in an impressive 11th the following season.

Rodgers then made the difficult decision to leave Swansea and embark on a new chapter in his career with Liverpool in 2012, with the Reds finishing 7th in his first campaign at the helm. The Merseyside outfit then enjoyed a stunning 2013/14 campaign, but in the end heartbreakingly missed out on the Premier League title by two points.

The 2014/15 campaign was well-below par, with the Reds flunking in the Champions League, while they also missed out on a prized place in the top-4, leaving Rodgers under pressure. Then, a below-par start to the 2015/16 cost him dear.

Brendan Rodgers Quotes

My biggest mentor is myself because I've had to study, so that's been.


I've always said that you can live without water for many days, but you can't live for a second without hope.


I use a quote with the players, "Per aspera ad astra", which is Latin for "through adversity to the stars".
