10 big questions for Leicester heading into the summer.
Leicester City have had quite an unsteady season this year, but have ended it really strongly to finish ninth in the Premier League. Former boss Claude Puel was sacked as Leicester manager at the end of February after a run of poor results and with the board and fans looking for a change in play style. Then Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers was quickly drafted in as his replacement, and under the 46-year-old they have enjoyed an impressive end to the season to finish in the top ten. Even though he has impressed in his first few months, Rodgers has a lot of tests to come and we will start to see during the summer where Leicester could be heading under his stewardship.
