    “I could hardly walk and it reminded me of walking up Mount Kilimanjaro, as you climb higher you get more breathless,’ Rodgers told BBC Radio Leicester.

    “We had a week off when we were supposed to play Watford on 14th March and then the week after that, I started to struggle. For three weeks I had no smell or state. I had no strength, and a week after, my wife was the same. We were tested and both of us were detected with the virus,” Rodgers said.
