Jamie Carragher has urged Brendan Rodgers that he could damage his reputation if he decides to depart Leicester City for Arsenal.

The Gunners are currently searching for a permanent manager after firing Unai Emery earlier this week.

Brendan Rodgers has been among the names linked with the role following an excellent start to the season with Leicester City.

But Jamie Carragher believes the former Liverpool manager should show loyalty to Leicester after he decided to leave Celtic to join the Foxes before the end of last campaign.

‘Well he has got a clause, I think that’s obvious now,’ Carragher told Sky Sports.

‘I think the position Brendan Rodgers is in, there’s no doubt if you’re a player or a manager you want to get right to the top.

‘At this moment Leicester sit second in the table and won the Premier League a few years ago.

‘But we’d be lying if we all said Leicester are one of the top clubs in the country. They’re not.

‘The established big six are, wherever Leicester finish in the league, they are the big ones who think they can do something in the Champions League and spend big money.

‘I don’t think it’s right if Brendan Rodgers is even thinking about moving to Arsenal right now.

‘Whether it was right or wrong, he got a lot of criticism from Celtic supporters for moving on before he finished the season, it was a tough decision for him because this job was the job everyone wanted, managers who couldn’t get a top-six job.

‘Leicester was the job everyone wanted with the players they have, the infrastructure at the club, so he got it, took that decision and accepted he’d get stick off Celtic fans.
