Harry Kewell joined The Debate on Sky Sports and discussed Leicester City’s extraordinary rise in the Premier League and the secret behind Brendan Rodgers’ success as their coach.
It was difficult to imagine the Foxes repeating the past glory they achieved under Claudio Ranieri when they conquered the English top-flight in 2015/16 but Rodgers is certainly making fans dream again. The Foxes are currently third in the Premier League behind Manchester City and Liverpool and Kewell believes it is because of Rodgers’ ability to get the best out of his players.
Here’s what he said on The Debate (27/2/2020): “And then you’ve got someone in Brendan Rodgers who talks a wonderful game, but also his ability to get the best out of his best players. I think that was the key and I think first and foremost, he got the best out of his best players and his best players really gathered the squad together.”
Even though they have been fantastic in 2019/20, not least before Christmas, it has to be said that Leicester have dipped in form ever so slightly in recent times. Rodgers’ team is still riding that four-game winless streak across all competitions and, if they are to maintain their high position in the table, they will definitely have to snap out of this limbo.
However, if there’s one thing we’ve learned about them this campaign, it’s that they know how to play and they know how to win. Let’s see where they end up come May.
Leicester fans, are you still confident that Rodgers can secure that European spot for the team? Where do you see your squad finishing this season? Let us know in the comments below!
