Leicester City will play in the Conference League this spring. Brendan Rodgers has openly admitted that he has no idea what the game is about.
Leicester competed in the European League group with Spartak Moscow, Naples and Legia Warsaw. Although the English club was considered the favorite in this group, it will only play in the Conference League in the spring.
In the end, “Lisy” took third place in the group. This was due to the result of the last match against Napoli. The English lost 2:3.
In the spring, Leicester will compete in the playoffs to advance to the 1/8 final of the Conference League. Rodgers admitted that the smallest European Cup is a mystery to him.
– I have to be honest: I don’t even know what kind of competition it is. I focused on playing in the Europa League, winning the group or at least finishing second. With all due respect, I’m not sure what it actually is. But I’m sure I’ll find out soon enough Rodgers admitted.
Before the draw, Leicester were among the remaining teams. His potential rivals include Maccabi Tel Aviv, Partizan Belgrade, Bodo/Glimt, Randers, Slavia Braga, PAOK Thessaloniki, Tottenham, Vitesse Arnhem and Karabakh Agdam.
Leicester played against Napoli in a squad that was far from ideal. Some players have been left out of the game due to the coronavirus, and others haven’t traveled to Italy just in case.
– There is a lot of naivety in our team. We have to do more on the field. In the case of the third goal, it was necessary to follow the running player. These are the basics of the game that we are not good at. We conceded really easy goals Rodgers summarized.
