Brendan Rodgers Wants Champions League Spot
Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers said he has “no doubt” his team can secure a return to the Champions League. The Foxes, who won the Premier League in 2016, have made a slow start to the resumption of the campaign, drawing twice and losing at Everton. But they did well to beat Crystal Palace 3-0 on Saturday and the result leaves them in the third place position.
According to Brendan Rodgers, he said: “We have to stay in this period and focus on the next game,” Rodgers said. “Hopefully by the end of the season, we achieve the objective and the dream.” Leicester is a point ahead of Chelsea who is the fourth place position, with in-form Manchester United two points further back, having won three successive league games.
Brendan Rodgers took charge in February 2019, as manager of the club and has been doing well he said his team has the capability to return to Europe’s elite competition. “There’s no doubt, we have shown over 33 games our talent,” he said. “OK, we’re maybe missing some players but as a squad we’re very focused on achieving it and we’ll fight to the final whistle.
“What the players have done has been remarkable. I’m pretty clear on that and getting the perspective of it all.” Leicester will be hosting Manchester United on the final day of the season but next travel to Arsenal on Tuesday, with Mikel Arteta’s seventh-placed side looking to extend a run of three successive league wins.
