The coach of Leicester City, Brendan Rodgers, has vowed to fight for the position of coach of the "Foxes", despite the recent results and the negative performance of the team. Leicester is currently in last place in the Premier League standings. The team has secured only 1 point in the opening 7 matches, and the last meeting against Tottenham ended with the numbers 6-2 in favor of the latter.
Regardless of the result, Leicester fought hard against Tottenham, and the gap between the teams was not that big, at least in terms of confidence on the pitch. This has been pointed out by Rodgers himself, who spoke to BBC Sport about the difficult situation the club is going through. The technician commented:
"I always think we can overcome this situation. You didn't see a team lacking confidence on the pitch today, and that's always a good sign. I will always fight, but I understand the game and 6 consecutive defeats is not good for anyone."
Meanwhile, in another interview, Brendan Rodgers stated:
"Whatever happens, I will always have a lot of respect for them (club managers) because they have given me a lot of support. I understand how football works. Whatever happens with me at Leicester, I will always have respect for them."
Midfielder James Maddison also spoke to the media after the defeat to Tottenham, defending manager Rodgers and placing some of the responsibility on the players. Maddison said:
"People look at the 6-2 scoreline and think that Leicester have collapsed again, but I don't think that's the case. In the first half I felt we were the Leicester we know, Brendan Rodgers' team that presses high and creates chances... The players have to take some of the responsibility. It's collective, it's not only the coach's fault, we're the 11th on the field. It's painful when you really respect the coach, ultimately we are the players and recently we haven't played properly."
