Brendan Rodgers described Leicester's FA Cup win over Chelsea as an historic, proud moment for the club, after they got their hands on the famous trophy for the very first time.
Appearing in their first FA Cup final in 52 years, Leicester emerged victorious thanks to Youri Tielemans' stunning long-range strike, and survived late VAR drama when a Ben Chilwell effort was ruled out for offside.
County Antrim man Rodgers said the presence of supporters in the stadium made it even more special and praised the "courage" of his players.
