Barnes backs Foxes to progress

Published on: 14 June 2019

Leicester City midfielder Harvey Barnes expects manager Brendan Rodgers to help the Foxes to progress next season, having signed a new five-year contract.

The 21-year-old England Under-21 international was a regular for City during the second half of last season, having been recalled from a successful loan spell with West Brom shortly before Rodgers took charge at the King Power Stadium.

I feel like he's brought my game on already and added bits that I probably didn't know I needed to have myself.

And Barnes was impressed by the way Rodgers helped Leicester finish the campaign in a positive fashion and expects further improvements, both personally and as a team, next term.

He told his club's official website: "I think he's been great for the club. For me as a player, I think he's been great as well, he's worked really closely with me, as he does with all the players.

"I feel like he's brought my game on already and added bits that I probably didn't know I needed to have myself.

"We're not really sure what to expect in pre-season yet, but it's going to be tough. It's going to be our first opportunity to see what the gaffer really wants from us and how he wants us to play.

"We've all had a little glimpse of that this season, but I think when we get a full pre-season with him, we could really do well this year as a team."

Leicester, who finished in ninth place in the Premier League last season, are 4/6 to finish in the top half of the table in 2019/20 and 11/10 to end up in the bottom half of the standings.
