Rodgers: I don't even know what Europa Conference League is 

Following Leicester's exit from the Europa League, Brendan Rodgers has claimed he doesn't know what the Europa Conference League is. 

Leicester dropped to the Europa Conference League following a 3-2 loss to Napoli on Thursday night. The Foxes will now face a play-off tie in February. 

"Well, I’m not even thinking [about that]. I’ve got, to be honest, I don’t even know what the competition is, in all fairness," he responded when asked if Leicester City can win the Conference League.

"I was focused on the Europa League, winning this group or at the very least finishing second."

"So with all due respect to the competition, I’m not sure what it is. But I’m sure I’ll find out soon enough."

On Napoli loss

"I think there’s a lot of naivety in our team and we’ve got a lot of young players."

"There’s been a bigger demand from them this season, and we’ve played a number of different systems and shapes. Individually it then comes down to having that mentality to track our runner or to stop a cross."

"That can be in whatever shape it is, but it’s my responsibility to find that solution. Tonight, we were good offensively but we were nowhere good enough defensively. I said to the players [at half-time] if we could just tighten up the gaps, and do the dirty side of the game."

"We’ve got to do more to block the shot for their first goal from their first attack. We needed to be more aggressive, the second goal we jump at the wrong time and that opens up the space and for the third goal, you’ve got to track the runner and stop the cross. These are the basics of the game we aren’t doing so well."

The Foxes will put their focus in the Premier League as they host Newcastle United on Sunday at King Power.
