Leicester manager, Brendan Rodgers has said his side’s 1-0 defeat by Manchester City was not in anyway a projection in his thoughts as his men played well.

According to Brendan Rodgers,Vincent Kompany’s goal left him in shocks as he never believed he could score from such a distance.

“You still wouldn’t think Vincent Kompany was going to score from 30 yards”Rodgers said

 “I thought defensively and tactically, the team played a good game. They are difficult to contain with their quality and some world-class players, but particularly in the first half we played with great courage. In the second, we didn’t start how I would have liked, we went too long in our build up.

“You still wouldn’t think Vincent Kompany was going to score from 30 yards into the top corner. We had seen many shots go over or wide, that was something we were not expecting.

“It bodes really well for the future of this team, hopefully we can build on it.

“Our motivation was to come in for our own development and performance, but we pushed City, arguably the best team in Europe right to the very end.
