Leicester assistant Toure lauds 'maestro' Rodgers

Leicester City assistant Kolo Toure has explained why Brendan Rodgers is a "maestro" manager.

Former Arsenal and Manchester City defender Toure was also part of Rodgers' backroom staff at Celtic, who he left for the Foxes last month.

"I'm learning from him every day," Toure told the Telegraph after following Rodgers from Celtic to take up first-team coaching duties at Belvoir Drive.

"He's very intelligent, organised, gives amazing detail to the players. He is the one who organises everything.

"He is the maestro, it's really good to work with him and see what he does on a daily basis.

"He prepares everything very well and his reading of the game is incredible. He can change the situation in a game so easily. He's a top manager."
