Leicester boss is not reviewing his ambitions after defeating Newcastle.

Brendan Rodgers

is not going to change his point of view about their ambitions even now that they see themselves in the Champions League qualified teams zone. After their victory against Newcastle he was asked if his targets and ambitions are changed now that they are third team in the Premier League but he said no.

“No, it’s still the same. My ambition is to get into Europe again and for us to progress. We want to be a team that year on year can get European football.

“It’s always going to be a process for us. We don’t have the finances to go and get that £70million, £80m, £90m player, so for us, we have to develop that player, bring in a young player or a senior player like a Jonny Evans, who is a top player, and manage his career through so he can help our younger players.

“For us, the goals are still the same. We’re virtually at the halfway point, we’ve started the season very well both in Europe and in the league, but we have a lot of work to do.”

And about their win against Newcastle that was picked in a rough match



“When it gets to 2-1 with 10 minutes to go, then it becomes a war, so you have got to show you have that ability to defend, and the players did that manfully.

“It was a really, really good three points for us.”
