Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers has told BBC Sport (17:18) that he is not concerned about catching Liverpool at the top of the Premier League table.
Rodgers made the comments following Leicester’s 3-0 win against Newcastle United away from home at St. James’ Park in the league on Wednesday.
The result means that the Foxes are now second in the standings with 45 points from 21 matches.
Leicester are 10 points behind leaders Liverpool, who have played 19 games, and manager Rodgers has said that his side are not aiming to challenge the Reds for the championship this season.
Rodgers told BBC Sport (17:18): “It’s not our concern to catch Liverpool, we get asked all the time but we are about developing the squad and the team.”
Liverpool are way ahead of the rest of the teams in the Premier League, and it is really hard to see Leicester or Manchester City catch Jurgen Klopp’s side this season.
Leicester are doing much better than expected, and the King Power Stadium faithful will be happy with a top-four finish in the Premier League and qualification to the Champions League for the 2020-21 campaign.
