Man City boss Guardiola admits being big Rodgers fan

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has sung the praises of Leicester City and their manager Brendan Rodgers.

Guardiola admitted during his Friday news conference that he has been hugely impressed by the job done by Rodgers since taking over from Claude Puel as Leicester boss in February, 2019.

"I know the incredible job he did at Liverpool but I was not here [at Man City]," Guardiola said. "I saw his team at Celtic and I said 'wow, this team plays good and aggressive and has good vibes'.

"Leicester have been incredible all season. They have an incredible organisation with good scouting. They know exactly what they have to do and it is nice to see teams play as well as they play.

"It benefits English football to have these kind of managers and these kind of teams."
