Brendan Rodgers Plays Down Speculation Linking Him With Arsenal’s Job

share on:

Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers has played down the suggestion he could take over at Arsenal if Arsene Wenger decides to step down this summer.

Brendan Rodgers has already led Celtic to the Scottish Premiership title in his first season in charge.

When asked in an interview with talkSPORT about being mentioned as a possible successor to Wenger, Rodgers said he had no immediate plans to return to the Premier League.

“One day I will look to go back [to the Premier League]. I wouldn’t rule out going abroad as well. But at this moment in time my only focus is for Celtic,” Rodgers said. “I love it here, I love the life up here and I want to continue to build the club and continue with the success.

“Maybe a few years ago I was super-ambitious … I still am ambitious but being at Celtic makes you reassess. You have to look at what you have got as well.

“As a Celtic supporter, I know what they want and I want to try and give them as much as I possibly can and when I do leave here, leave a legacy that allows for the next guy to come in and hopefully take it on again.”
