​Rodgers set for huge pay-out if Leicester sack him

Leicester City will have to stump up more than £10million to axe their manager this month.

The Foxes are rock bottom of the Premier League with one point from seven matches.

Their latest result was a 6-2 battering at the hands of Tottenham on Saturday, which means it is their worst start to a top flight season in decades.

According to The Mirror, Leicester will owe manager Brendan Rodgers an eight-figure sum should he be sacked.

He has almost three years left to run on his £200,000-a-week contract with the club.

While Leicester could place him on gardening leave to avoid paying the whole sum in one go, they would have to stump up a lot of cash unless Rodgers lands another high paying job within months.
