Brendan Rodgers has once again reiterated his commitment to Leicester, insisting that rumors linking him with the Manchester United job are “not real”.

The Foxes boss, who led the club to an FA Cup trophy last season, is among the names reportedly on the Red Devils’ shortlist as the club considers a successor to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

However, the former Liverpool head coach has moved to distance himself from those rumors, insisting he is happy at King Power Stadium.

Rodgers was speaking at a news conference to preview a Europa League match against Legia Warsaw, and the vacant Manchester United job was unsurprisingly one of the subjects raised by reporters.

“I don’t take it as anything, it’s not real,” he said. “There’s always gossip and that will be there until they appoint a full-time manager.

“My commitment is to here. The culture here is about the development of the players, and that’s where I see it, even more so in this period.”

PSG boss Mauricio Pochettino is widely considered United’s preferred choice to succeed Solskjaer. The former Tottenham boss is also believed to be keen on the move, but PSG is reluctant to lose the Argentine mid-season and has rebuffed United’s initial inquiry.

Manchester United is therefore expected to press ahead with its initial plan of appointing an interim manager until the end of the season before a permanent appointment in the summer.

Former Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde is one of the names on United’s shortlist and talks have already been held about Valverde taking the reins on a short-term basis.

Michael Carrick is currently in caretaker charge and led the club to a 2-0 Champions League victory against Villarreal on Tuesday.
