Managers Reaction

Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers: “It tells you everything about the spirit of the team. We will play better this season, but we have shown real resilience and a tough mentality, and that’s important in the Premier League. The players have been quite good but not had the performances they deserved. But I feel we are getting to that spirit and cohesion we have had during most of my time here.”

Leeds boss Jesse Marsch: “I have a fresh perspective. I look at the faces on the team and obviously, they are disappointed because they know they have played well and deserved a result. After four days together and to have changed a lot of the tactics, I am really proud of the group to have stayed so stable at the back, not to have given much away, and to have controlled so much of the match.”
