Brendan Rodgers says he’ll be expected to challenge for a European place and a trophy after taking over as Leicester City boss.
The former Celtic manager takes control with Leicester 10th in the Premier League ahead of Sunday’s trip to his former club Watford.
It is understood that Rodgers’ appointment has already been welcomed by the Foxes squad, with the 46-year-old lifting the mood at their Belvoir Drive training ground.
The players have been receptive to some of his early changes, including giving them a monthly training schedule, instead of the weekly plan under predecessor Claude Puel.
“The expectancy is to challenge for a European place and challenge for a trophy,” Rodgers told the media on Friday.
“What Leicester achieved was an incredible story, it’s one of the most incredible sporting stories. That will always be difficult to repeat.
“After a couple of years of instability and sitting mid-table, their objective is to move up. I don’t want to put any pressure on the players. We just have to do our very best. “For the remainder of the season we will look to do that.”Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
