Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers has slammed the club fans for their reaction after they were eliminated from the FA Cup by Nottingham Forest.
In the game, a fan appeared to throw punches as Forest celebrated a goal before being taken away by security.
Rodgers wasn’t pleased with the move and speaking after the game, he admitted that he was disappointed at how some of their fans behaved.
“There’s no room for it and I’m sure as a club we’ll deal with that. It should never happen, no matter how disappointing your team is and how they’ve been playing. The players have to be safe on the field. It was a great atmosphere today. I feel a big disappointment for our supporters, but we can never accept that behavior,” he said.
Rodgers however apologized to the supporters for the team’s performance which he admitted was not up to their standards.
“It was an awful performance and I have to apologize to the supporters. It’s a lack of hunger. I said to the players (at half-time) that for the first time since I’ve been here I’ve been embarrassed. It was an embarrassing performance. I feel for the supporters,” he added.
Attention for Rodgers now turns to the league where they are slated to take on Liverpool next Thursday.
