Soccer – Rodgers relishing Leicester challenge

Brendan Rodgers says he is revelling in the challenge of turning Leicester into a top-six club. The Foxes were languishing in mid-table in the Premier League when Rodgers was brought in to replace Claude Puel in February 2019. Leicester have won 16 of 29 Premier League games to sit five points clear of fourth-placed Chelsea, who are themselves three points ahead of Manchester United in fifth. Rodgers, who has also managed Watford, Reading, Swansea, Liverpool and Celtic, is enjoying his time at the King Power. Speaking to BeIN Sport, Rodgers said: "It's not one of the top six clubs, but the big challenge was can we take a club there, I have absolutely loved it." Looking ahead, England are 5/1 with bet365 to win Euro 2020.
