has talked about his team’s mentality after their victory against

AEK Athens


Here is what Rodgers said about their position in Europa League and Premier League after AEK match:

“I couldn’t ask for any more. If you said at the start of the season we would be top of the group and fourth in the Premier League with all the injuries we’ve had I would have been pretty pleased.

“We spoke about the scenario before the game, trying to make it more than a group game. It was one we wanted to win so we had to show the mentality and attitude in the game.

“We wanted to start strong and played with intensity and real speed. Everything about our game was very good. We managed the game well and had more chances, with a little bit more quality we could have had the goals.”

Here is what AEK boss said after their defeat:

“The first half, we didn’t start well and defended too deep. In the second half I saw a reaction and we were more aggressive,

“Errors can happen, I’m not concerned about it. We didn’t press enough, our midfielders were sat too deep and they weren’t pressing their defenders and midfielders. It meant the Leicester forwards were finding space between our lines.”
