Rodgers 'not offered Northern Ireland job'
Saturday 10 December 2011
The Irish Football Association chief executive Patrick Nelson has denied that Swansea City manager Brendan Rodgers was offered the Northern Ireland job on a part-time basis.
Rodgers said yesterday an official approach had been made by the IFA to Swansea chairman Huw Jenkins, which he had turned down.
Nelson said no formal approach had been made for Rodgers. "I won't talk about individuals but what I can tell you is that nobody has been offered the job," Nelson told the Belfast Telegraph. The IFA will begin interviewing candidates next week.
