SportRodgers talks Vardy, burglary, Morelos and more
Leicester interested in Rangers forward Morelos
Rangers striker Alfredo Morelos is a transfer target for new Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers, according to The Express, via TEAMtalk, but he will not look at raiding his former club Celtic. Morelos has been attracting attention from across Europe after scoring 26 goals in 35 games in all competitions so far this season, and is reportedly sought after by Rodgers. The Leicester boss saw his side fall to a late 2-1 defeat against Watford in his first game in charge since replacing Claude Puel and despite his interest in the Rangers star, the report suggests he will not be looking to sign any of his former players at Celtic.
Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers spoke to the media ahead of his first home match as Foxes boss on Saturday when Fulham visit the King Power Stadium.
Rodgers’ first game in charge ended in frustrating fashion as his side conceded a goal in added time to lose 2-1 at Watford last Sunday.
The defeat all but ended Leicester’s Europa League hopes as it now leaves them still in 11th place, eight points off Wolves and Watford.
During the week news emerged that the former Celtic manager’s house in Glasgow had been broken into and robbed while his wife and daughter were present.
