Brendan Rodgers slams Leicester board after Man United defeat

The Northern Irishman feels he has ‘not had the help’ required on the personnel front


Leicester City head coach Brendan Rodgers has, late on Thursday, taken aim at the powers that be at the club, over their lack of investment on the transfer front this summer.

The Foxes, of course, were back in action a short time ago.

And, as alluded to above, amid his post-match interview, Leicester’s boss took full advantage of the opportunity to take aim at both the club’s board, and owners.
