Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers says his side are “two games from history” after setting up an FA Cup semi-final against Southampton with an outstanding win over Manchester United. Rodgers made sure to remind the players before the match of what they could achieve.
Brendan Rodgers said: “We’ll look forward to it, any semi-final is always going to be a tough team you play. Southampton are a very good side that’s why they are there as well. It’s a little while to go for that. I said to the players before: ‘You are three games away from playing in history, and when you have the chance to do that, you have to give everything you can to create it.’ It’s now down to two games. You have to respect every opponent. If you get to the semi-finals you’re going to be playing a good team. We knew the draw at half-time but it was irrelevant, you have to look after the game you were in and thankfully we were able to do that.”
City will likely be favourites against Southampton, and will have an extremely good chance to reach the final for the first time since 1969. Rodgers said it would mean a lot to him, the players, and the owners
Brendan Rodgers said: “It would be a great privilege to be there. I left Celtic feeling like a winner and I ahd the ambition to win again. The club has never won the FA Cup, they have been to four finals and not won it, so to be able to do something like that would be special. I would be so happy for the owners. Coming to here, it was a competition that was very important for the owners. We are in the semi-final, and have a chance to get to the semi-final, and when it comes, we will fight to achieve that.”
