According to Eurosport, Rodgers is happy in the midlands and is not interested in replacing Mourinho.
Sky Sports, also confirmed Rodgers’ stance: “My focus is purely here at Leicester, we still want to develop, I have a great connection with the players and the board and we have plans to keep progressing,” Leicester boss said per Jamie Weir.
