Brendan Rodgers’ sacking by Leicester was ‘INEVITABLE’, claims Jamie Redknapp

On Sunday, former Liverpool manager, Brendan Rodgers was sacked by Leicester City after 16 months in charge at the King Power stadium. The decision was met with surprise from many in the football world, however Jamie Redknapp has claimed the sacking was “inevitable”.

In an article for the Daily Mail, Redknapp wrote that despite Rodgers' initial success with Leicester, the team had been in a “tail spin” for months and that the decision to part ways was “inevitable”.

He wrote: “The Leicester City job was always going to be a tough one for Brendan Rodgers, who had enjoyed a strong start at the King Power stadium. But in the past few months, things have been in a tail spin and the decision to part ways was inevitable.”

Redknapp claimed that a lack of creativity and defensive stability had proved to be Rodgers' downfall and that in the end, the Leicester hierarchy had “run out of patience” with the Northern Irishman.

He added: “Leicester had become too predictable under Rodgers, the lack of creativity in their play and the defensive instability was their undoing. In the end, the Leicester hierarchy had run out of patience and decided enough was enough.”

Redknapp believes that Leicester have made the right decision, but that Rodgers is a “top class” manager who will find another job soon.

He concluded: “It was the right decision for Leicester, who are clearly in need of a fresh approach. But Rodgers is a top-class manager and no doubt he will be back in work soon.”
