YOU ARE GOOD IN THE MORNING
Brendan Rodgers has been linked with Manchester United following the sacking of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer today.
The Red Devils are set to pay £8m in compensation to his current club, Leicester.
That’s £7.5m for Solskjaer.
Former Liverpool manager Rodgers has a clause in his contract that allows him to speak to a number of clubs if they come knocking – and United are one.
Luis Enrique has ruthlessly removed himself from the Manchester United manager’s chase.
Asked about replacing Solskjaer in the hot seat at United, Enrique told La Sexta: “Is today April Fools’ Day?”
Sacked Solskjaer thinks his successor MUST win the Premier League.
He said: “Well, as I have said many times in interviews, I have been supported.
“The board of directors and owners have supported me [terms of] put good people, good players in and I think, or I know I leave this club with a better squad.
“The environment is amazing, it’s an environment that I’m proud to leave because you have to enjoy coming here to work.
“I don’t want to beat against anything but the two times I left Molde, they won the tournament next year.
“So all the best for whoever takes over – that’s expected!”
