There are some rumours about Brendan Rodgers being interested in taking Arsene Wenger’s position once the Frenchman moves out of the Emirates. But currently, he has no reasons to quit Celtic FC. But somewhere inside him, he has a desire to manage Arsenal – in the hope of returning back to the Premier League.
Arsenal might not get to play in the Champions League next season and many people feel that Brendan Rodgers is the right man for the job. Given the fact he brought a similar sort of revival at Celtic FC.
But now Rodgers is not distracted by anything as he is quite happy at Celtic Park and wants his team to do well and win the Scottish Premiership title. They are currently sitting at the top of the table with a six points lead over their urged rival Rangers FC.
During an interview with The Time, Rodgers said: “Arsenal is a great club with a great manager”
“People will look at it and see that, I went to Liverpool, they were struggling for five seasons for Champions League football and I was able to get them back. When I came to Celtic, they hadn’t been in the Champions League for three seasons and I got them back. So maybe people are thinking, OK, Arsenal have been out of the Champions League and that is maybe the equation for someone like myself.
“However, I’m loving my life up here. I’m not going to be here forever but I’m living in a dream, although dreams always come to an end at some point, that’s for sure. I’m always relaxed about speculation but my focus is only on Celtic. It’s a fantastic club, Arsenal, but they have a great manager. Unfortunately, the criticism Arsene takes is now the way in the modern game, modern football. That’s unfortunate because he has done so much for the British game.
“He came in 20-odd years ago and revolutionised the game. And it’s disappointing and sad for another manager to see someone of that quality and who is held in such esteem have to go through that. I love my professional life here, the challenges of managing, the expectations, the scrutiny that comes with Celtic.
“Like I say, I’m living the dream. As for the other stuff, you can’t control it so I don’t worry about it. It will always be the case at big clubs, especially if your results turn the other way.”
