Rodgers the key to Foxes upturn - Maguire
Brendan Rodgers' "impact" on Leicester is behind the side's bid to achieve a best run of results in two years, Harry Maguire has said.
The Foxes host Newcastle on Friday aiming for a fifth straight Premier League win, something they have not achieved since Craig Shakespeare's first games as boss in 2017.
They are seventh, leading the race for a possible Europa League spot, and Maguire believes Rodgers' influence is key following the Northern Ireland tactician's arrival as Claude Puel's successor in February.
"He's a really good coach who will improve us as a team massively. The club has shown really great ambition in luring him here," said the England defender.
"He breeds confidence into players, he's helping to bring the younger players through, does a lot of work on the training pitch and his man-management is really top. He's made a really big impact.
"Over the last four games, we've started to pick up results we've warranted.
"We're scoring the first goal in a lot of games which is really important so we can kick on and get a second and third.
"The performances have been really good and I think in every game, we've deserved to win."
