After his 6th consecutive defeat against Tottenham (6-2), Brendan Rodgers, the coach of the red lantern of the Premier League Leicester, knows he is threatened and admitted, on Saturday, that « owners will do what they think is right », even if he wants to fight. « Whatever their decision is, I will respect it (…) the owners will do what they think is right, I am not stupid »replied the Foxes coach after the match, when asked if he felt threatened.

« I know football and losing the last six games makes a bad impression, » he still admitted, while affirming that he was « 100% » ready to take on the challenge of turning the team around. « When I see what we did tonight for 73 minutes (until the 4-2 goal, editor’s note), we did not see the team without conviction », he judged. « In the first half, we pressed hard, we played with determination, we scored two goals and we created chances, » he recalled.

Probably a good time to put things straight

« We take a goal early in the second half, which is disappointing, but Hugo Lloris makes incredible saves to prevent the 3-3. Then they score the 4-2 goal (with goals from) two corners and two loose balls stupidly. And then we give them too much space »he summarized. « It’s hard for the players because they really showed courage against Tottenham who are an excellent team. We take 4 very, very avoidable goals and it’s difficult to win games when you don’t know how to defend well « , he added.

Tudor – Payet: whose fault is it?

With one point in 7 games, Leicester made their worst start to the season since 1983/1984 and had never conceded so many goals over the same period (22) in their history. The coming international truce « is probably the right time to put things back on track and forget about the summer which was difficult », judged the manager, in particular with reference to the fact that his team registered only one rookie, the Belgian Wout Faes, while they lost their goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel and Wesley Fofana.

« There are a lot of good things to take from this match (…) we just have to erase the mistakes », he pleaded, hoping the club owners would give him time to try.
