Brendan Rodgers targeting Champions League return with Leicester City

Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers is targeting a UEFA Champions League place for Leicester City over the final ten games of the season.

The Foxes have been stationed within the top four throughout the majority of the campaign and despite a tricky run of form in recent weeks, they remain eight points clear of fifth-placed Manchester United.

With just a quarter of the season remaining, Rodgers wants his side to make the campaign a memorable one by making their first return to European competition for the first time since 2016/17.

Speaking ahead of the East-Midlanders’ clash with Aston Villa on Monday, he said: “We have an opportunity now with 10 games to go to make it a historical season.

“If we can qualify into the Champions League for only the second time in the club’s history, you think of the great players and the work that has gone on over many years here to be able to do that, it would be incredible.

“But it’s going to take a lot of hard work still, a lot of focus. But our aim was to have European football and we’re in a great position to do that with just 10 games left.”

The Foxes can be backed at odds as low as 1/8 with Betfair to secure a top four finish come the end of the season.
