British managers are being judged differently, says Rodgers

Fri 20 November 2020 | 20:36

Leicester City's boss is clearly upset about the way British managers are being judged. He thinks that people are underestimating them.

Brendan Rodgers

claims that British managers are being judged differently only because they are British. Rodgers took charge of

Leicester City

in 2019 and finished 5th on the table in his first season.

The Foxes have already beaten

Pep

,

Arteta

, and

Bielsa

and have won 6 of their 8 starting games of the new season of Premier League.

Rodgers

believes that people think he is lucky for his achievements so far only because of his nationality.

Speaking ahead of Sunday's trip to former club

Liverpool

, Rodgers talked up the merits of British managers and believes they have it tougher than their continental colleagues. 

"As an island, we produce very good coaches," he told a media conference on Friday. "The systems in place in the last 15 years have ensured we do well in game. 

"As British managers, we are always judged in the most difficult league in the world. 

"There was a question after the

Leeds

game about

Bielsa

,

Pep

and

Mikel

but, with all due respect,

Mikel

has been a manager less than one year. 

"We've got a load of great coaches. You just want respect for your work."
