No problem with lack of European success - Rodgers

Wed 09 December 2020 | 17:31

For Rodgers, lack of European success has not become a mental concern.

Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers has claimed that his lack of European success has not bothered him.

As the leaders of Group G, the

Foxes

will play the final match of the group stage of the Europa League against Athens. They are at the top of the table with 10 points, and although Braga also has 10 points, Leicester is at the top due to better results in the head-to-head match. Rogers' best performance in European competition has been the promotion to the round of 32 of the Europa League with Liverpool and Celtic, and he has experienced 7-0 and 7-1 defeat against Barça and Paris Saint-Germain. Now he claims that not having European titles is not a mental concern for him.

He said: “

My yardstick has always been about influence and how we can influence players’ development. Of course we want to win but it’s not at the forefront of my mind, in terms of worrying about myself and trophies.

“There are some great coaches and managers who never get the chance to do that.

“My challenge here was to try to get Leicester into the top echelons of the league and hopefully that would allow us to play in Europe.

“In our first full season we have been able to do that. It’s always easy to do things once so can you do it the second time? That is what’s in the forefront of my mind.

“Over the course of your career everyone would love to do that (succeed in Europe) as a coach. I’m just loving my job here, loving my work here and our ambition in every competition is to be the best we can.”
