Maguire expecting Leicester to be ‘very successful’ under Brendan Rodgers

Leicester City defender Harry Maguire says that he is expecting the club to be ‘very successful’ under new manager Brendan Rodgers.

Rodgers was appointed Leicester manager last week after deciding to leave Celtic following three trophy-laden seasons in charge, and despite losing his first game in charge – a 2-1 loss against Watford – England international Maguire is expecting the Northern Irishman to have a positive impact at the East Midlands club.

“He (Rodgers) said there’s lot of positives to take into the coming games. He said we’ve had a positive first week, with the exception of the result [against Watford],” Maguire told

“I’m sure he’s disappointed as well. It’s a tough place to come and they’re doing well in the league, but we didn’t deserve to lose the game.

“It’ll take time for him to get his points across. He’s only been in for a couple of days, so he keeps giving us little pointers about where he wants us to improve.

“I’m sure he’s got a philosophy in how he wants to play and the boys will buy into it so I’m sure that we’ll be very successful.”
