The 46-year-old has expressed his readiness to give his best to the team, "I'm very privileged and honoured to be here as Leicester City manager and I'll give my life to make the supporters proud of their club."
"Together, we'll be stronger and I'm looking forward to working with the players, staff and supporters to make the steps forward," Rodgers said.
