Brendan Rodgers would prefer Arsenal or Chelsea job to Leicester – former Celtic star
Rodgers is on the verge of leaving Celtic and becoming the new manager of Leicester.
The former Liverpool boss will leave the Scottish giants before having the chance of completing the ‘triple treble’ this season.
He was pictured at Leicester’s King Power stadium on Tuesday and is expected to be in the stands for the Premier League clash against Brighton.
Rodgers has previously been linked with the Arsenal job before Unai Emery was appointed last summer.
Chelsea may also be in the market for a new manager soon, with Maurizio Sarri’s long-term future in doubt.
Commons was asked on Sky Sports News on Tuesday: “Do you think it [Leicester] is a bigger job than the Celtic job?”
Commons was unequivocal in his response and says Rodgers wants to manage a top side in the Premier League again.
“Absolutely not, no,” he replied.
“I think the English Premier League has played a huge part in Brendan going down there.
“I think Leicester have got a top coach, a top manager, a proven manager.
“But I think, for me personally, Brendan’s better than Leicester.
“I think he’s proven that at Liverpool, he’s proven that at Celtic.
“I think he’s a tremendous manager, great coach and I think Leicester have got a real, real top manager there.
“Me personally, I think he’s better than that.
“It wasn’t that long ago that he was linked with the Arsenal job – that’s the sort of thing that Brendan wants.
“I think he wants to be winning titles, being part of cup-winning teams.
“Whether this is a stepping stone, whether or not this is going to be a couple of years job to look at possibly the likes of an Arsenal, maybe a Chelsea, I think that’s more in Brendan Rodgers’ mind right now.”
