Leicester the underdogs again in a tale of two Cities

Media reports have suggested Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola could give England playmaker Jack Grealish,

Leicester City could be facing the Premier League’s first 100 million pound ($139.29 million) player when they meet Manchester City in Saturday’s Community Shield at Wembley but that will just be added motivation for manager Brendan Rodgers.

Media reports have suggested Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola could give England playmaker Jack Grealish, signed from Aston Villa for a Premier League record on Thursday, a first outing in the curtain-raiser to the season.

The Foxes upset Chelsea 1-0 at the stadium in May to win the FA Cup for the first time and have shown money is not everything, however.

“You can look at it two ways and think you can never compete or you try and create a culture and an environment that means you are going to be competitive,” Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers said of Man City’s spending.

“We know the level in the Premier League but it doesn’t stop us competing,” added the Northern Irishman, whose side finished fifth last season.

City have won the shield six times previously, from 12 appearances, and most recently in 2019.

Leicester’s 1-0 FA Cup win was the club’s first in their history but Saturday will be a third appearance in the curtain-raiser.
