Kasper Schmeichel has said that Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers has “restored their identity”. Leicester moved seven points clear of West Ham in fifth place after their 2-1 victory over Crystal Palace. Rodgers took over as Leicester manager in 2019 with the Foxes languishing mid-table in 11th place.
Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers almost took this team into the Champions League last season. They painstakingly fell short on the last day of the season losing a decider against Manchester United. Victory over Crystal Palace meant they needed just three more victories to guarantee themselves a place in next season’s Champions League.
Schmeichel is one of the few players plying their trade for the Foxes ever since their miraculous title win five years ago. He says that Brendan Rodgers has reignited a spark that wasn’t present before his arrival at the King Power.
“Brendan’s come in and done wonders for us, I think he’s the absolute perfect manager for us at the perfect time. He came in when we needed an identity, we needed to find our feet. Who were we after this amazing title win?” he said.
