"My only concentration is Leicester" - Brendan Rodgers addresses Arsenal speculation

Brendan Rodgers says he remains committed to Leicester City after his side earned a dramatic 2-1 win over Everton at the King Power Stadium.

The Foxes netted late on through Kelechi Iheanacho to collect all three points, and move into second in the table, eight points off pacesetters Liverpool.

However, with Arsenal currently on the lookout for a new manager, Rodgers has been linked with the vacancy at the Emirates.

The former Liverpool and Celtic boss said "there probably is" a release clause in every manager's contract, in response to a question whether his own contract has such a clause.

Nonetheless, Rodgers reiterated his commitment to Leicester.

"It's all hypothetical all these types of situations,' Rodgers told Sky Sports post-match.

"I think for me at this moment, we've had a brilliant win today, we came back really, really well.

"My focus is very much with Leicester, because I made a change eight or nine months ago and I came into here and I've been so happy since I've come into here, to work with the players and I feel we still have a lot of work to do. My only concentration is Leicester,"

"I've been very fortunate in my career to work with some brilliant clubs and some great institutions and coming to here, this was an ambition to come here to help the club arrive in the top six.

"For us, everything's been great since we've worked together, we know there'll be bumps along the way but for me my ambition at this very moment in time is to help this club, a responsibility to share that with the Director of Football, with Susan our chief executive, to try and move the club forward.

"I'm very happy in doing that and there's great, great potential here at Leicester City in order to push on in the next few years."
