Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers has been discussing the recent rumours linking him with a move to Arsenal this summer.
Rodgers spoke with the Daily Mail about his tenure with Celtic so far and was quizzed on the links with the Gunners, as the club reportedly prepare for life after Arsene Wenger.
If you’re happy, ultimately that’s all that matters. The money’s irrelevant. You can have X amount of pounds in your bank every month but if you’re not happy and you’re not finding peace in what you’re doing, it doesn’t really matter.
However, Rodgers was in no mood to entertain these rumours and took the chance to once again reaffirm his commitment to Celtic.
The ex-Liverpool man has enjoyed plenty of success in Scotland and is on course to lead the team to a historic domestic double. A new challenge will someday await Rodgers but it seems he is not overly enthused by the reports of Arsenal’s admiration of his ability.
Rodgers enjoyed a successful spell in the Premier League with Swansea and although the first 18 months of his tenure with Liverpool were positive, he struggled to sustain the same high level at Anfield.
I love the Premier League, the quality of the players, the quality of the coaches. There are great challenges. But there are arms and legs flying off managers down there.
You can come here and my genuine love is improving people and making them better, helping the club improve and getting the chance to develop and win things and see people improve.
Or do you go somewhere where you might have six games? That wouldn’t make me happy. So it’s a Catch 22.
