Former England manager Roy Hodgson backs Leicester's Brendan Rodgers as a potential future Three Lions boss as his Watford side prepare to face the Foxes on Sunday

Watford boss Roy Hodgson has said Leicester's Brendan Rodgers is a potential future England manager.

Rodgers, who takes his Foxes side to Vicarage Road on Sunday, has impressed with his work at the King Power.

The former Liverpool boss has registered back-to-back top-six finishes in the last two years and won last season's FA Cup, building on the fine work he did at Celtic.
