Brendan Rodgers has stressed that he has no intention of leaving Leicester City and insists his message to Arsenal is ‘clear’.
The Leicester City manager is one of the candidates to replace Unai Emery following Arsenal’s decision to sack the Spaniard last week.
Freddie Ljungberg has been brought in by the Gunners as an interim manager, while speculation has linked Rodgers with a move away from Leicester before the end of the season.
But the 46-year-old is adamant that he will not be ditching Leicester any time soon.
‘Yeah, the message is clear and it has been and probably I’ll get asked again until they appoint someone, but it’s very simple. I’m very happy here,’ said Rodgers.
‘I made a choice nine months ago to come here for a purpose.
‘The purpose was very clear in that I wanted to help this club move forward and looking to lead it forward with a group I feel has huge potential.
‘Why would I want to move from that?
‘OK, I moved after nearly three years at Celtic and people may look at me thinking: ‘Right, because a club like Arsenal, with the great institution and size, and all of that’.
‘But it’s all about happiness and I couldn’t be happier here. My contract is until 2022 and the club haven’t said they want to release me from that.’
