Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers insists they will still attract top talent – regardless of Champions League qualification.
The Foxes have been a distant second to Liverpool for a large chunk of this campaign and their form since lockdown has seen them slip down the rankings to fifth. But victory over Manchester United today will see them finish in the top four.
Rodgers said: “Even if there was no European football, Leicester City is a very attractive proposition.
“Forget the Champions League and the Europa League for a moment, this is a fantastic club that has ambitions and is moving forward, step by step.
“Next season we are moving into a training facility that will be one of the best in world football.
“We are a club that develops players, a club that wants to improve and develop.
“We would love to be in that Champions League bracket – but we know how hard it is to sustain that.”
