There was a lack of intensity behind his side’s Europa League exit to Slavia Prague, believes Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers.
Brendan Rodgers blamed deficiencies in pace, imagination and consistency for Leicester City’s Europa League exit as his own poor record in the competition’s knockout stage continued.
The Foxes were favourites to advance from their last-32 tie with Slavia Prague but succumbed to a 2-0 defeat at Thursday’s King Power Stadium after a goalless draw in the first leg.
“We didn’t create enough over two legs. That’s the reality,” Rodgers told BT Sport. “We didn’t defend with any intensity. We gave away two disappointing goals.”
“We got into some good areas but lacked quality when we arrived in them. We started pretty well and exploited some spaces behind, but we didn’t have enough quality to break them down.”
“Before this game, we were in three competitions and we wanted to give it our all. We know where our priorities are and now, we’ll do our very best. We just lacked intensity and quality.”
