Brendan Rodgers regularly monitors the mental health of his Leicester players during the coronavirus crisis.
Leicester was involved in the last Premier League game before the shutdown – a 4-0 win over Aston Villa on March 9 – and has since closed their training ground due to the spread of Covid-19.
That has prompted players to try to maintain their fitness levels at home, but Rodgers is keen to make sure they are healthy.

He said, “I’ve spoken to most of the players, I’ve made contact with them and made sure they’re okay.
“On the mental side for players, it’s a difficult time for everyone around it, so we’re helping them deal with that side. It is important to support their mental fitness and well-being. We have a structure for that. ‘
Premier League leaders hope to restart the season, although they cannot do so before April 30 at the earliest. One idea is to host the remaining games in June, although Rodgers warned against setting such goals.
He added, “It is very difficult to look ahead [to the return of the football season]. It’s more about people’s well-being. That’s what’s important.
People’s health is the most important thing. The football aspect comes later, once the virus has been addressed. We think purely of the well-being of our colleagues and their families. ‘
