Leicester City boss explains their ambitions for winning FA Cup ahead of the final.

Brendan Rodgers

insists that

Leicester City’s

late owner will be with them spiritually in the FA Cup final and says that he wants to win that trophy for him.

"I'd love to win it for Khun Vichai and his family,"

Rodgers said

. "His spirit and presence will be there with us on the day.

"Having Top over this week has really magnified one of the reasons I came here. It was because of them and the cause Leicester City has.

"Of course, I'd love to do it for the players, I'd love to do it for the supporters, but if I had to pin one it would be for Top and his family. That would be truly special.”

Rodgers knows that other than the emotional effect of the owner’s death, it is especial for them considering the fans' long wait for the trophy.

"It's a really special game to look forward to. We've all grown up with it, watched the build-up to the game, so to be able to lead Leicester City out for the first time in over 50 years will be a real privilege.

"This is a game where you can create an incredible legacy and you write your own story in these games and that's hopefully what we can do.”

Brendan Rodgers’ men will face


in the FA Cup final on May 15, and

Jonny Evans

is in doubt for them and may be forced to sit out that game.
