Brendan Rodgers will hold Leicester City training sessions at the King Power Stadium to get his players used to playing in an empty ground.

The Premier League, which was stopped in March by the coronavirus pandemic, is set to resume behind closed doors on June 17.

Leicester are due to head to Bournemouth the following weekend, and Rodgers wants to give his players every chance of coping with a strange atmosphere created by the lack of fans.

Rodgers said:

“We’ll look at trying to prepare as best we can for Bournemouth and will have some practise games in our own stadium before we play.

“We’ll play at the King Power so they’ll feel and get a sense of it.

“The game is not the same. It’s absolutely not. It can’t be. However, it’s what we have to do.”

Leicester, currently lying third in the Premier League, have four home league games left against Brighton, Manchester United, Sheffield United and Crystal Palace, whilst they’re also due to host Chelsea in the FA Cup quarter finals.
