However, Kasper Schmeichel produces a couple of saves, jointly with VAR to held Tielemans’ goal to the last whistle. Expressing his happiness, Rodgers points Schmeichel saves and Tielemans goal as special moments to go down in FA Cup history.
“Youri Tieleman’s goal was like an old school FA cup winning goal but also Kasper Schmeichel’s save. Those are the special moments you need in games,” Rodgers pointed.
Rodgers claims, “Overall we were the better team, super-aggressive, pressed well, we were always a threat with the ball. Chelsea are an amazing team, that’s why they’re in a Champions League final but I thought we deserved it.”
Leicester ends the 52 years final woes and converted the history finals defeat disappointment to a joyful celebration. To the world football surprise, Rodgers admitted he didn’t realize the club had never won the FA until taking charge in 2019.
“It’s an amazing feeling. I wasn’t aware before I came to Leicester that they’d never won the FA cup,” Rodgers admitted.
“They’d lost in four finals previous so to be able to give that to the owners and the fans, so special.
“[I’m] so proud, the board players staff, supporters, an amazing day for the city. So proud for everyone,” he said.
“The success of this team and club is getting to positions like this and competing, the so-called bigger clubs are expected to win. But our success is competing and if we can perform like today we can go and win. What a day for everyone involved with Leicester,” Rodgers concluded.
