Rodgers explains new Leicester deal: We can be remembered in 30 years' time

Brendan Rodgers says he signed a new deal with Leicester City as he feels they can make history.

Rodgers has penned a massive £40million deal to stay at Leicester after snubbing Arsenal.

He said, “In 30 years' time, this is a team that could be remembered for the level of football and how competitive they are.

“That would be the ultimate for me.

“I'm committing my work and life to here to give it everything.

“You want your legacy to be what the supporters see on the field, but also the feeling that they have watching the team.

“I've met supporters who have been watching the club for 60-odd years.

“They're so inspiring talking about this being the best football they've seen of a Leicester City team and they've not missed a game for years.

“That always drives you on and gives you extra motivation that they're enjoying what they're seeing.

“It's my responsibility to try to ensure they feel that happiness.

“I've got a real motivation."
