If Manchester United came calling, Stan Collymore believes Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers might be persuaded to quit the club.

Despite winning 3-0 at Tottenham Hotspur at the weekend, United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has come under fire for his team’s recent performances, and the jury is still out on whether he is the right man to take the club forward.

Many have predicted that Rodgers, who has been Leicester’s manager since February 2019, will succeed Solskjaer if the Norwegian is fired following United’s recent poor performances, which have seen them lose 5-0 to Liverpool and fail to overcome Aston Villa and Everton at home.

Rodgers could be a better fit at Old Trafford than Solskjaer, and Collymore recently wrote in his Daily Mirror column that he anticipated the 48-year-old to accept a bid if one came up.

“Rodgers may well have distanced himself from the Tottenham job very quickly, but this would be a totally different matter,” Collymore said.

“Whether you are a player, head coach, manager or tea boy, the likes of United only come calling once. He’s said how happy he is at Leicester, and why wouldn’t he be? But this is totally different.”

He added: “United come knocking at your door only once. When the big job, the truly big job is dangled in front of you, then you go.”
