Leicester Boss Brendan Rodgers: I am not worried about relegation

Brendan Rodgers, the manager of underdog Leicester, maintains that he is not worried about being relegated despite having lost seven of his previous eight Premier League games.

The struggling Foxes lost 2-1 to Bournemouth on Saturday, blowing the opportunity to climb out of the bottom three. This season, they have now lost 14 points from leading positions.


What has been said?

Rodgers is sure that he can turn around the fortunes of his struggling team and that they will finally be safe.

Regarding being demoted, he replied, “I am not thinking about it.”

“Saturday was an opportunity, and we didn’t take it, but I’m not thinking in that mindset. We are a very powerful bunch, and I feel that we will gradually remove ourselves from it.”

“The players will attest to my strong desire to encourage and assist them, but we need more consistency. You always benefit from adversity because it shapes your response. For me, maintaining composure is crucial.”

“It’s not easy, there’s no doubt about that, but it’s my responsibility to guide the team through and out.”

Rodgers, who guided Leicester to FA Cup triumph in 2021, declares he will accept leading the team to safety following another devastating loss.

The former Watford, Reading, Swansea, Liverpool, and the Celtic manager said of setbacks: “It’s part of the job.”

“I’ve had a lot of generosity from the game, and I still have many years to manage. Never expect everything to go your way.”

“I’ve had the good fortune to win some trophies and significant matches throughout my career, so this will be another challenge.”

“In my first work at Watford, I was perhaps in this position before my career. This challenge is similar. I’m embracing it because I want to demonstrate that we can overcome this.”
