Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers has ruled himself out of the running to be Arsenal’s next manager.

The 46-year-old has been linked with the job after Unai Emery was sacked by the Gunners on Friday but insisted he was staying after the Foxes’ last-gasp 2-1 win over Everton.

Kelechi Iheanacho’s stoppage-time strike – given by VAR – broke the Toffees’ hearts to leave them two points above the relegation zone.

Jamie Vardy cancelled out Richarlison’s first-half opener to leave Everton boss Marco Silva on the brink.

Rodgers has guided Leicester to second place in the Premier League after six straight wins and said he was staying.

“Yeah, very much so,” he told BBC Radio 5Live.

He continued: “It doesn’t annoy me. I don’t think so much about it. It’s not in my control.

“I came here to help the project and see if we could bring it forward. I’m at a great club. I absolutely love it here.

“It seems now you’re talking about a manager losing their job all the time and looking to be replaced.

“Names will get thrown right, left and centre. For the Arsenal job there are probably about 10 names. Me, I’m just concentrating on Leicester.”
