Leicester City legend Robert Huth backs Brendan Rodgers to steady the ship at his old club. The Premier League winning defender in 2016 believes that their manager is still the right man for the job despite the recent losses.
Speaking to Ladbrokes this week, one of Leicester's Boys of 17 said:
Brendan Rodgers is still the right man to turn things around at Leicester for sure. The last couple of results haven't been ideal at all, let's not beat around the bush. But the players that are there are his players. They're not playing terribly bad at the moment, it's just simple mistakes that have cost us.
The Irish manager is facing pressure due to the terrible start to the season Leicester City have suffered. They sit bottom of the table with just 1 point after six straight defeats and a goal difference of -12. Huth is keen to point out that his club have faced tough sides in their opening games.
We've played some tough games already, not to sound like I'm making excuses, but we've played Arsenal, Chelsea, Man United and Tottenham in our first seven games.
Massive game on Monday
The Premier League winner thinks Monday night's game, a derby against Nottingham Forest is a massive game. Forest are above Leicester in 19th and they won 4-1 the last time they played each other in the F.A Cup last season.
Monday night is massive for us, it's under the lights, it's live on TV. It's a derby, the pressure is on and it's up to the lads to deliver.
The former German International was speaking to Ladbrokes where he discussed his memories of Leicester City's miraculous title win and his thoughts on the club's situation. You can read the interview here.
The ownership trusts me
Speaking to the media ahead of their crucial match against Nottingham Forest, Rodgers states that Leicester's owners still trust him to turn things around and have been nothing but supportive to his situation.
The ownership trusts me and they expect that I'll turn it around and if they don't they will tell me. I've had nothing but support from the club but I also understand where we sit and this is why we look forward to the game on Monday.

Rodger's side take on Nottingham Forest on Monday night at 8:00pm. A win against their East-Midland's rivals might prove to be the boost to turn Leicester City's season around and ease the pressure off their manager.
