I think there was a number of reasons [why I joined]. I was certainly in no hurry to leave Celtic. Celtic is a club that’s a huge club worldwide, a renowned club, and I loved working with the players there.”“We were on a journey of great success over these last years but when the opportunity came to talk to Leicester and I was able to analyze it, it allowed me to think that I’d probably achieved and taken the club may be at Celtic as far as I could at this moment,” he added.“The opportunity to speak with Leicester and find out their ambitions and where we can grow the club and the training facility. Of course, the big attraction for me is working with the players.””I’m joining a fantastic club.” 🔵Hear from our new First Team Manager as we say #WelcomeBrendan 👇Harry Maguire, Manchester UnitedLiverpool legend Nicol slams Harry Maguire’s Man United form Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Steve Nicol believes Harry Maguire has made some “horrendous mistakes” recently, and has failed to find his best form since joining Manchester United.— Leicester City (@LCFC) February 26, 2019“It’s a young squad, a very dynamic squad, it’s got huge potential and you’ve got some of the players with good experience also. There was a number of factors in being here and, as I say, I’m absolutely delighted,” he continued.“Coming into the club at this point of the season, it’s never normally ideal, but it gives me the chance to observe and analyze the players over this last period of games.”“I know it’s been a really difficult season for the Club on and off the pitch. It’s been really emotional in many ways,” Rodgers added.“For me, it’s the case of just trying to stabilize the emotion of everything that’s happened this season and looking to inspire the players so that they can then inspire the supporters.”“Myself and my staff will come in and we’ll look to immediately put in place our philosophy and that identity that my teams normally play with and hopefully then over the course of time, the supporters will recognize that and they’ll come to enjoy it,” he concluded.#WelcomeBrendan 🦊— Leicester City (@LCFC) February 26, 2019last_img
