Leicester City manager, Brendan Rodgers, has said that he has no extra motivation to do his former club, Liverpool, a favour in the Premier League title race, when his side plays Manchester City on Monday.
Liverpool went back on top of the table by two points, with a dramatic 3-2 win over Newcastle United on Saturday.
However, they will only be in pole position to clinch the league title on May 12 if Rodgers’ Leicester can claim a draw or better at the Etihad Stadium.
Yet Rodgers, who went agonisingly close to winning the league with Liverpool in 2013/2014, says he is only focused on his job at Leicester.
“I am employed by Leicester. My focus is on Leicester City. There’s no comparison really.
“It’s exciting to be involved but my thoughts are solely with Leicester and doing what we can to get a result.
“Liverpool back then was at a different stage. We had young players, loan players. We went from eighth to second in a couple of years so it’s a different dynamic. We deserved to finish second,” Rodgers told a news conference.
