EPL: Leicester boss Rodgers welcomes new coach Knudsen

Lars Knudsen has joined Leicester City’s coaching staff.

The specialist set-piece coach arrived at the club last week, manager Brendan Rodgers has confirmed, after a two-month delay. Rodgers revealed at the start of August that the club had recruited a set-piece coach but that the process of bringing him in had taken three or four weeks to that point, with City seeking the FA’s help to get him a visa.

Rodgers said on Knudsen’s appointment at his press conference on Thursday: “He currently works for the USA national team as set-piece coach. He worked before with the Danish national team and was also an assistant manager in Denmark.

“He came very highly recommended. Lars worked closely with the guy who has been appointed as set-piece coach for the German national team (Mads Buttgereit), they worked very closely together. We’re delighted to have him in. It took a long time for him to come in. He’s settled in very well.”
