Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers admits he still contacts Harry Maguire ahead weekend clash

Ahead of their Saturday clash, Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers has revealed that he is still in touch with Manchester United defender Harry Maguire.

Leicester travel to Old Trafford to take on United as Rodgers will reunite with Maguire for the first time since leaving for a record £80m transfer fee. United have been in poor form of late having not won a single game since thrashing Chelsea 4-0 in their league opener.

Speaking in a press conference ahead of the clash, Rodgers revealed his text to Maguire, "I text Harry still now, wish him the best when he was playing with England. He was a remarkable guy, a fantastic player and for me, his behavior in the period that he was here, really typified him as a man.

"Even though it was so difficult for him right the way through the summer, from the end of the season right the way through, his behavior was exemplary and I'll always have a big respect for him for that. He's a good guy and he's gone in there and you can see he's made them better."
