Manager with 139 Premier League wins has just rejected offer from Crystal Palace


Manager with 139 Premier League wins has just rejected offer from Crystal Palace

Why Chelsea FINALLY Turned A Corner.

Brendan Rodgers has now rejected an offer from Crystal Palace as Steve Parish and Dougie Freedman continue to hunt for Roy Hodgson’s replacement.

That is according to the Daily Record.

So, what are the details involving Brendan Rodgers and Crystal Palace? Let’s take a look…

What’s the story?

Well, the Northern Irishman has been unemployed since receiving his P45 at Leicester, following Jean-Philippe Mateta’s 94th minute winner over the Foxes in April.

Rodgers has not been short of offers, with Leeds and Celtic keen to hire him – according to the Daily Record.

However, we also get a mention in that specific report.

It is said that Rodgers – who has won 139 of his 312 Premier League games – rejected an offer to take over at Selhurst Park as he no longer wants to fight against relegation in England’s top-flight.

According to the Guardian, the 50-year-old is now close to returning to Celtic after the Bhoys lost Ange Postecoglou to Tottenham.

Crystal Palace dodge bullet with Brendan Rodgers

In our view, it is a blessing in disguise that Rodgers rejected Parish’s offer.

The Carnlough-born tactician often enjoys a few seasons of success before things start to fall apart, which is exactly what happened at Liverpool as well as Leicester.

In some ways, it feels as if Rodgers is almost another version of Alan Pardew in that respect – a man who guided us to the FA Cup final, before ultimately being sacked after selling leaders in Mile Jedinak, Yannick Bolasie and others.

No manager worth his salt should have had Leicester anywhere near the relegation zone during the 2022/23 season, and it will be interesting to see if Rodgers bounces back again.

The likes of James Maddison, Timothy Castagne, Wilfred Ndidi, Youri Tielemans, Harvey Barnes and Kelechi Iheanacho are good enough to form the spine of a UEFA Europa League side, at the very least.

While many of us are growing frustrated at the lack of manager news, this update should come as a positive.
