Brendan Rodgers pauses for a second before answering the question. We are talking family and football in his spacious office at Leicester City’s magnificent new 185-acre training facility in Seagrave, near Loughborough, a 25-minute drive from the King Power Stadium.

Through a giant window, Rodgers gazes outside and views football pitches as far as the eye can see. There are 21 in total, 14 of which are full size, plus a spectacular indoor arena, customised gym, swimming pool and a private nine-hole golf course for the players and staff who each have luxury hotel-style rooms inside the £100m state of the art complex.
