According to a recent report from Sky Sports News, Leicester City paid Celtic a huge £9 million in order to secure the services of both Brendan Rodgers and his backroom staff. Rodgers, who is the former manager of Liverpool and Swansea City, has officially returned to the English game after spending the last few years dominating Scottish football with Celtic. He has replaced the outgoing Claude Puel who was sacked after going seven games without a victory.
Rodgers had a release clause which was believed to be in excess of £6 million with Celtic, although the cost of hiring Kolo Toure, Chris Davies and Glen Driscoll increase that figure.
Many fans were initially split on the signing of Rodgers given how his tenure with Liverpool came to an end, but when it comes to his experience, it certainly seems like he could have a positive effect on the Foxes and their push for the Europa League.
