Rodgers Disappointed With Leicester City’s Carabao Cup Defeat To Aston Villa

Brendan Rodgers bemoaned the definite penalty that was not awarded as his Leicester side lost out to Aston Villa in the Carabao Cup semi-final second leg.

Marvelous Nakamba’s arm was raised as he blocked James Maddison’s shot but, despite a VAR check, no penalty was given and the night ended in disappointment for Leicester.

Trezeguet scored in stoppage-time to give Villa a 2-1 win on the night and a 3-2 win on aggregate to take his team to Wembley – and leave Rodgers frustrated.

“I thought we had a clear handball that looked a definite penalty,” he told Sky Sports. “So I am absolutely gutted for my players because they put so much into the game.

“Especially coming from behind and playing with that composure, scoring a very good goal, and by the end of the game there looked like only one team who were going to win it.

“But we switch off from a cross and then the guy gets in at the back post and scores it. So yeah, a tough one to take because over the two games I felt we were the better side.

“We played with a nice control, nice composure in the game, and created opportunities. I thought we were excellent [but] the goalkeeper has made some outstanding saves.

“Congratulations to Aston Villa. They go through and we have to move on.”
