Swansea boss Rodgers not ready for Chelsea role

Saturday 31 March 2012

Brendan Rodgers has ruled himself out of the running to fill the vacancy at Chelsea after declaring that he is not ready to move to a bigger Premier League club than current employers Swansea City, Press Association has reported.



Rodgers has been linked not only with the position at Chelsea currently held on an interim basis by Roberto Di Matteo, but also the expected opening at Tottenham Hotspur should incumbent Harry Redknapp swap White Hart Lane for Wembley and the opportunity to manage England. But Rodgers has indicated he does not feel fully prepared on a personal level for either post.


He said: “I don't think it [a move to a top club] would be too soon but it might be too soon in my personal life. This has been a big year for us.” Rodgers’ father died in September after a battle with cancer.


The 39-year-old, from Northern Ireland, was formerly a youth team and reserve Coach at Stamford Bridge under Jose Mourinho and Filipe Scolari, before managing Watford and Reading in the Championship. Rodgers took over at Swansea in July 2010 and guided the Welsh club to the Premier League in his first season in charge.
