Leicester boss Rodgers throws down gauntlet at Castagne

Brendan Rodgers has told Timothy Castagne he must prove himself in training if he wants to play for Leicester.

The Belgian international has been replaced in the starting line-up by Luke Thomas in the last two fixtures against Manchester United and Brighton.

When asked why Castagne had been dropped, Rodgers told the Leicester Mercury: “We played Luke Thomas on the left for balance.

“And obviously JJ went over onto the right side.”

Pressed on how Castagne gets back into the side, Rodgers replied: “By training well.”
