Ex-Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers breaks Leicester’s silence
The former Celtic manager left King Power Stadium on Sunday after losing to Crystal Palace at the weekend.
The defeat leaves the foxes in second place in the table and is very much threatened with relegation to the championship.
Rodgers has broken his silence on Leicester’s decision to remove him from his position.
And while he’s confident he could have accomplished the task at hand, he wished the club all the best for the future.
In a statement released by the LMA, Rodgers said: “I would like to thank Leicester City chairman Mr Srivaddhanaprabha and the whole board for giving me the opportunity to lead Leicester City and over the last four years with this great one to make football club history.
“We have developed a special relationship and I will always show them the utmost respect and affection.
“The players, my staff and I gave it our all every day and I will always be proud of what we have achieved together.
“Beating Chelsea at Wembley in 2021, creating the first FA Cup for the club and their fans and securing European qualifications back-to-back seasons are moments I will never forget.

“Everything we have achieved has been with the amazing support of Leicester City fans and I thank them for that. It was a privilege to be your manager.
“Of course, I would like to thank the players and the staff for all their hard work and dedication. I enjoyed working with you and seeing you develop every day.
“I would also like to give a special mention to my coaches Chris Davies and Glen Driscoll who have been a key support throughout my time at the club.
“There’s a strong infrastructure and environment that puts the club on a strong footing to move forward – a world-class training facility, a passionate and unwavering fanbase, a group of great players full of ability and character, and special owners.
“I am obviously disappointed to be leaving so close to the end of the season and had every confidence that we would have delivered the results needed to retain the club’s Premier League status. I want to wish everyone at the club the best of luck.” They continue to try to achieve that goal.
“Now I look forward to having the opportunity to reflect and recharge and prepare for the next opportunity.”
