Rodgers wants defenders happy to play football
Brendan Rodgers wants his defenders to be comfortable on the ball and encourages them to play out from the back.
The Northern Irish tactician appears to have had the Midas touch since arriving at Leicester, with four consecutive victories propelling the Foxes up to seventh in the Premier League standings.
It has not taken the former Celtic chief long to get his message across and the stale football played under Claude Puel now seems a thing of the past.
Both Caglar Soyuncu and Harry Maguire have been seen to play further up the pitch at times, while Wes Morgan has also been given a bit more freedom to roam forward.
Rodgers is a big believer in the necessity to be comfortable with ball at feet and made it clear his men must fall in line.
"It is so important at the very highest level," he said. "You have to be able to deal with the ball. I always say you have no right to be on the pitch at the highest level of sport if you are not fit and you can't pass the ball 10 metres, and you get paid the money you do.
"I think for a big part of it is about positioning within the team and giving them confidence."
