Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers has apologised to the club’s fans after a disheartening loss to Bournemouth on Sunday.

Brendan Rodgers tongue-lashed Leicester City after a 4-1 loss to Bournemouth on Sunday, labelling his side’s performance as ‘terrible and sickening’

Leicester led early in the through a goal from Jamie Vardy before falling apart on Sunday. The English side are currently chasing down a top four spot.

Junior Stanislas equalized with a penalty, Dominic Solanke scored a brace, and Jonny Evans scored an own goal. With matters getting worse after Caglar Soyuncu was sent off.

Leicester will likely fall to fifth in the table if Manchester United win their match against Southampton on Monday.

Rodgers was visibly furious with his side, who have only won just one out of their seven games since the season restarted last month.

‘It isn’t a happy changing room and it should not be, because that is unacceptable, to deliver such trash, especially after working so well in training’ the Leicester City manager told LCFC TV.

Like I said, it was our attitude. We did not show the right spirit and that is something that we have showed consistently. But, yes, that was very disappointing.

‘The Sheffield United game on Thursday will be a big challenge for us because we need to show a greater level of physical strength and mindset. That will be a really tough task.

‘We had a good result at Sheffield earlier in the season and now this is a game where we have really got to show our strength and look to get working together again.’

After welcoming Sheffield United, Leicester City’s last two games of the season are against Tottenham and Manchester United.
