Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers has blasted his own fans for booing his team following their 3-0 loss to Chelsea on Saturday.
Rodgers has been linked with a move to Man United and there are reports that the rumors have unsettled the tactician something he denied. The tactician felt that their supporters were disrespectful given The Foxes won the FA Cup last season and are currently struck down by a series of injuries.
"I said in the week that it (Man United links)is nothing that is real. I spoke to the players on that. And then today (the result) is nothing to do with that.
7.1% - As a Premier League manager, Brendan Rodgers' lowest winning percentage (7.1%) and points-per-game ratio (0.71) against a single side are both versus Chelsea, winning only one of his 14 fixtures with the Blues (D7 L6).

"I have to say it (the defeat) is very disappointing. I think we have a sense of respect from where this team has been over the last few years. We have totally overachieved to arrive in the top six and challenge for the top four," he said.
Leicester are without key players Youri Tielemans, Wesley Fofana, and James Justin, and hardly troubled Chelsea who scored goals through Antonio Rudiger and N'Golo Kante in the first half and Christian Pulisic in the second.
