Leicester manager Rodgers expresses 'empathy' for Man Utd counterpart Solskjaer

Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers admits he has 'empathy' for Manchester United counterpart Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Having beat Aston Villa on Sunday, Solskjaer's side will face Leicester on Tuesday before taking on Liverpool on Thursday.

"I have empathy for Ole,' said Rodgers. "It's a hell of a schedule to play last Thursday, then Sunday, Tuesday and then Liverpool on Thursday.

"It's tough physically for the players - no matter how big a squad you have it's a difficult turnaround."
