Leicester City

Rodgers ready of Europe calls

19th April 2019, 07:31 by Nick Harris

Brendan Rodgers says Europa League qualification could come too soon but if it happens Leicester City will be ready.

Leicester are currently seventh in the Premier League table and that would see them return to Europe next season if Manchester City beat Watford in the FA Cup final.

Rodgers, who has won four of his six matches in charge since replacing Claude Puel last month, has stated his aim to establish the club in the top six and is unsure whether a Europa League campaign next season would help or hinder that goal.

"There's an argument for and against it," the manager told reporters.

"It could come too early for us, especially when we're trying to create something, but it's always difficult to turn it down if the opportunity is there.

"At the moment it looks like no one wants it, we lost on Friday and all the other teams around us lost as well.

"But our job is to finish the season as well as we possibly can and if that takes us to seventh then great, we'll embrace whatever the challenges are for next season whether we're in Europe or not."
