Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers believes his Leicester City team deserved to beat Chelsea in the FA Cup final because they were the better team.

He said, “Youri Tielemans’ goal was like an old-school FA Cup-winning goal, but also Kasper Schmeichel’s saves – those are the special moments you need in games.

“Overall we were the better team, super aggressive, pressed well. We were always a threat with the ball.

“Chelsea are an amazing team, that’s why they’re in a Champions League final, but I thought we deserved it.

“The reality is there are other teams that can provide budgets way beyond us at Leicester City. We have shown we can compete and fight against it.”
