Rodgers says Leicester squad contains several potential managers

Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers says his squad contains several potential managers.

Rodgers has worked in dressing rooms alongside Steven Gerrard and Frank Lampard, both of whom have gone on to become managers in recent years.

Asked if he has any players in his Leicester squad capable of making that step, Rodgers told Sky Sports: "Youri Tielemans, for a young guy, I would not be surprised if in 20 years he is managing somewhere.

"Just with his view and he's also very interested in that side of it. Jamie Vardy wouldn't surprise me because he's very tactical.

"But for all of these players, it is a totally different game, there's a lot of work that goes into becoming a coach and then a manager."
