Rodgers: Window will define expectations

Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers says expectations for this season will have to be set after the transfer window shuts.

The Foxes, who have started the campaign with a draw and a loss, have only signed back-up goalkeeper Alex Smithies so far amid a difficult summer at the club.

Any signings are largely dependent on players being sold, with Chelsea having had two bids rejected for Wesley Fofana and Newcastle also being denied in an attempt to sign James Maddison.

Rodgers is beginning his fourth full season in charge at the King Power and, having recently delivered back-to-back top-five finishes in the Premier League, expectations may have to be tempered.

“Let’s see where we’re at in a few weeks when we’re into early September,” he said ahead of Saturday’s visit of Southampton..

“For me, we’ll wait to see where we are when the window ends. What I do know is that I’ve got a group of players that are so keen to learn.

“I love working with them. It’s the longest I’ve ever been at a club, which tells you how much I love working with the players here and being involved with the football club.

“My ambition is to always improve and develop and that’s what we’ll look to do again this year.

“If we don’t have these resources to improve and develop, then we have to try to find other ways to be able to do that. The people I feel for at the minute for the supporters."
