Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers has recovered from COVID-19


Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers has revealed that he's made a full recovery after contracting the coronavirus. 

The former Liverpool boss and his wife tested positive for the virus in March and become the second manager in the Premier League to do so, following Arsenal's Mikel Arteta.

"Me and my wife had it just after the season broke up," Rodgers told BBC Leicester. "A week later I really started to struggle, I had no smell and no taste.

"I had no strength, and I really struggled, and my wife was the same as well. I got tested and we both had it. I could hardly walk.

"It reminded me of climbing Mt. Kilamanjaro, as you climb higher you get more breathless.

"Walking 10 yards felt very different. I went for a run, and I just couldn’t do it. I felt really weak, had no real appetite, and had a weird sensation for three weeks of having no taste".

Leicester are in third place in the Premier League ahead of next month's resumption of the English top-flight.
