Brendan Rodgers: 'I will always support Celtic,' says Leicester City manager

Will he be Manchester city's hero again

"It's not about the amount of goals you score it's about when you score them".

Iheanacho got off The Foxes' bench midway through the second half, as Rodgers looked for a way back into the game, after Vincent Kompany's thunderbolt opening goal for City, but the Super Eagles' youngster shot wide right in front of the begging net of his former club. I'm really happy for the team. It's incredible, what we have done, but it will make more sense if we are able to lift the Premier League.

Numerous players who helped Leicester win the title have already moved on, including Robert Huth, Danny Drinkwater, N'Golo Kante and Riyad Mahrez.

"Every step in the last four months was significant".

Kompany, who has been at City for 11 years, is out of the contract at the end of the summer with talks set to take place at the end of the season over the possibility of a new deal.

"We spoke with him and his agent".

"Kompany has been here more than 10 years and he has helped with an incredible generation of players like Joe Hart and Pablo Zabaleta, create with other players like Hart and Zabaleta, they create this club". I think they're the best two sides I've faced as a manager.

Guardiola has already led his side to Carabao Cup glory this season, while they will face Watford in the FA Cup final at Wembley on 18 May.

'We respect that it will be a tough game for us on Monday. It's exciting to be involved but my thoughts are exclusively with Leicester and doing what we can to get a result'.

"When you're seven points behind, you could have said, "It's done" and just think, "We did it last season", Guardiola added. "We will try to win the game and go to Brighton with it in our hands". We are going to prepare well. We got deeper and deeper. "It will be tough, but hopefully we will have the performance to be champions".
