The switch from Celtic to Leicester City wasn’t easy for Brendan Rodgers and his family. He revealed that some of his relatives currently don’t speak to him.
If you can think back to February 2019 – which seems a world away following the current coronavirus crisis – then you’ll remember that was a decisive period for Leicester City. Yeah, that’s right – it’s when Brendan Rodgers joined the Foxes as manager.

June 17 is the return date for the English top-flight.
