Rodgers excited by Leicester's new training ground

Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers is excited by the prospect of the club's new training ground opening.

Construction work is ongoing on the £100million base to the north of the city, which Rodgers hopes will allow Leicester to move in before the start of next season.

Rodgers told beIN Sports: "There's ambition with the club. We can never compete financially with the top six but we can be competitive [on the pitch].

"We move to a new training ground later in the summer which will be one of the best in the world.

"The consistency has been great to see. Up until Christmas we were on a great run. After Christmas there are challenges with a young squad, but any bumps we've had, we've been able to get over that.

"It's always refreshing when you work with a group who are so hungry to learn. They want to be better, they want to improve. But then you have senior players who are top-class professionals and that always helps.

"I wouldn't like to say I'm surprised because we've done a lot of hard work on and off the pitch, but it's always nice when you see the fruits of your work."
