Newcastle have chosen the new coach, he is one step away from Leicester’s Rodgers

Newcastle has a very rich and ambitious new owner. The first step in creating a high-level team passes from choosing the new manager. So many names have been made for Bruce’s succession. Among the names made also those of Ancelotti, Mourinho and Zidane, but the chosen one seems to be Brendan Rodgers of Leicester.

The Newcastle changed ownership about a week ago, the disputed owner Mike Ashley sold the club to the Pif (Public Investment Fund), a fund directly controlled by the Saudi Arabian government which paid out 300 million pounds (350 million euros) to buy the 80% of the Juventus club, the remainder was taken over by PCP Capital Partners and RB Sports & Media Group. And from the moment in which Newcastle have new owners, a flurry of rumors has been unleashed which has also involved the big names in world football. The new managers are in a hurry and have already chosen the new coach.

Right now the ‘Magpies’ are low in the table, Newcastle didn’t make the transfer and Bruce had to adapt, but the music could change very soon. The first step to change the face of the Bianconeri is related to the new coach. The names of big shots like Tell Mourinho, but also of other high-profile technicians. The bookmakers favor Eddie Howe, ex Bournemouth, but according to the British media the chosen one is Brendan Rodgers, the coach of Leicester. The Northern Irishman seems ready to say yes, with the Foxes his cycle seems to have closed. To free him, however, it is necessary to pay the 16 million clause.

I know Rodgers will say yes to Newcastle’s proposal and will leave for the second consecutive time mid-season. The former Liverpool in fact accepted Leicester’s offer in February 2019 when he suddenly left Celtic, with whom he had won two championships. With the Foxes Rodgers finished the Premier League twice in fifth place, but above all he won two trophies: the FA Cup and the Community Shield in 2021. This season Leicester did not start well, they are in the second half of the table and scored only one point in two Europa League games.
