LEICESTER will reportedly give Brendan Rodgers one last chance before they relieve him of his duties following the club’s horror start to the season.

The Foxes are rooted to the bottom of the Premier League table having failed to win any of their opening seven matches.

It is the worst start any team has made since the Premier League began in 1992 with the Midlands outfit claiming just one point out of a possible 21.

SunSport exclusively revealed last week how Brentford boss Thomas Frank is at the top of their wishlist should they sack Rodgers.

But the highly-rated Dane only signed a new contract to 2025 in January and is in no rush to leave the ambitious Bees.

Leicester know it will cost a pretty penny to axe the Northern Irishman with Rodgers due £10million in compensation.

And according to The Athletic, the cost of removing Leicester’s highest-paid manager in their history is being factored into the board’s thinking.

They also state that Rodgers is likely to be given more time ahead of the crunch clash against 19th-placed Nottingham Forest after the international break.

But failure to beat the newly-promoted side could see them take action depending on how they play and the reaction from fans.

The news outlet also adds that Leicester want to give Rodgers every chance to succeed given his achievements at the King Power Stadium.

Rodgers has guided the Foxes to FA Cup and Community Shield glory, while he also took the club to the semi-finals of the Europa Conference League last season.

Rodgers, who was appointed Leicester boss in February 2019, appeared almost resigned to his fate following Saturday’s 6-2 hammering at Spurs.

He said: “I know how football works and I totally understand the frustration of the supporters.

“I cannot hide from that because it’s my responsibility.

“Losing the last six games doesn’t make great reading but whatever happens to me here at Leicester, I will always respect this club.”
