Brendan Rodgers has revealed that he had coronavirus quickly after the Premier League season was suspended.

The Leicester supervisor stated that both he and his spouse tested positive after showing signs, but have recovered.

The league was suspended on March 13 after Arsenal head coach Mikel Arteta had contracted COVID-19.

Rodgers informed BBC Leicester Sport: “Me and my wife had it just after the Premier Season got suspended. A week later, I truly began to battle where I had no odor and no taste.

” I had no strength, and I really had a hard time, and my wife was the exact same also. I got assessed and we both had it. I could barely walk.

” It reminded me of climbing up Mount Kilimanjaro, 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 genuine appetite, and had an odd experience for three weeks of having no taste.”

The Premier League project will provisionally reboot on Wednesday, June 17, with Leicester sitting 3rd in the table with nine matches to play.
