Northern Irish coach Brendan Rodgers believes that his Portuguese counterpart, Jose Mourinho, is still one of the leading figures in the field of coaching in Europe.



Leicester City will meet its Italian guest, Roma, tomorrow, Thursday, in the first leg of the semi-finals of the European Conference League.


Roma occupies fifth place in the Italian league standings, and after he was coach of the youth team at Chelsea, during Mourinho's first term at Stamford Bridge, Rodgers remained a great supporter of the controversial Portuguese coach.


"He has nothing to prove to anyone. He will always be the winner. I cannot speak of him as being above him. He is one of the greats of our generation," the British news agency BA Media quoted Rodgers as saying.


"He's a coaching milestone," Rodgers explained. "He was brilliant in so many aspects of the game. The detail orientation, the management of players, the understanding of the tactical adaptation of the game, he had that special quality that I was able to see."


The Leicester boss added, "I have nothing but admiration for him. I became a manager, but I will never forget what I gained from him as a young coach. I studied and watched him and in that time it was a really special period."


Rodgers will be able to put veteran striker Jamie Vardy in the starting list for Leicester against Roma, after he participated in the team's goalless draw with Aston Villa in the English Premier League last Saturday, as this was his first participation after an absence of 6 weeks, after suffering from a knee injury. .


But Rodgers has indicated that Jamie Vardy is unlikely to play the whole match.


"I'm sure of that," Rodgers said. "He's a great player, he has that streak in his game, his charisma in the game and his experience. That's a huge plus for us."


Olympique Marseille meets Feyenoord Rotterdam in the other semi-final in the continental competition, and Rodgers feels that the competition in the tournament, which begins for the first time this season, is already increasing.


"It's a prestigious competition, all four teams want to win," Rodgers revealed.


He added, "It is a great occasion to play against one of the elite teams. To get to the final we will do everything we can. It is another symbol of our development as a club."


Ricardo Pereira scored Leicester's late victory goal during their 2-1 victory over PSV Eindhoven in the second leg of the quarter-finals earlier this month, as he expressed his appreciation for the scale of the confrontation against Roma.


"It's the club's first semi-final and we have a chance to reach the final of the European Championship, it's a huge achievement. We all know that and that's why it's a big match for us," Pereira said.
