Kasper Schmeichel on Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers: “Brendan’s come in and done wonders for us, I think he’s the absolute perfect manager for us at the perfect time. He came in when we needed an identity, we needed to find our feet. Who were we after this amazing title win?”

Kasper Schmeichel said Brendan Rodgers has “restored Leicester’s identity” after the Foxes closed in on a top-four finish with a 2-1 win over Crystal Palace.

When Rodgers took over at the King Power Stadium in February 2019, the Foxes sat 11th in the Premier League, 18 points off the top four and had scored only 34 goals in 28 games.

The ex-Liverpool and Celtic manager’s side missed out on the Champions League on the final day of last season but now will guarantee themselves a top-four finish – only Leicester’s second in Premier League history – if they win three of their final five games, although less than nine points may well be sufficient.

Schmeichel, one of few players still turning out for the Foxes who played a part in their title-winning side five years ago, told WVN Sports after their late turnaround victory how Rodgers restored a spark that had been missing in the East Midlands before his arrival.
