Sky Sports writer Nick Wright has featured on the latest edition of the Pitch to Post podcast to discuss Leicester City’s end to the Premier League season.
Brendan Rodgers’ side go into the final game of the 2020/21 Premier League campaign with a place in the top four now out of their hands.
Will Leicester qualify for the Champions League?
Leicester are guaranteed a spot in European football for next season with a place in the Europa League secure if they fail to make it into the top four.
With Champions League football now out of their hands, the Sky Sports journalist discussed how big of a blow that could be in relation to Leicester’s finances.
He said: “It would be a definite blow, wouldn’t it? I mean, certainly financially it is a real shame for the club if they’re going to miss out on the financial rewards of the Champions League qualification.
“And yeah, it’s a huge disappointment for fans to have been there for so long and then potentially slip out in the last couple of weeks this season.”
TIF Thoughts on Leicester’s top-four hopes…
Given how Leicester have been in the top four longer than any other Premier League side this season (242 days) it will be a huge disappointment for the club not to qualify for the Champions League.
