Leicester duo Ben Chilwell and Hamza Choudhury fined by team-mates for turning up late for training


Ben Chilwell and Hamza Choudhury have been fined by their Leicester team-mates for turning up late to training. 

Both men were left out of the Foxes side that lost 2-1 against Burnley but Brendan Rodgers insisted it was not a punishment for their tardiness. 

The pair have accepted the punishment from their peers and the money goes towards a fund for the Christmas party. 

Rodgers himself had accepted that on this occasion both players had personal reasons why they were late to training. 

He said: ‘They missed a very important session for us in the week, which was the build-up leading to this game, so we could not bring them into the game,’ Rodgers said.

‘They were just unavailable for the training. We were doing a lot of preparation for this game, they were unable to be there, so we now move on.

‘Both will be in contention for Wednesday.’

Leicester take on West Ham at King Power stadium on Wednesday and will look to get back to winning ways. 

They have enjoyed a tremendous season so far but have not won a Premier League game for three matches. 

Rodgers’ side remain in third place, three points behind Manchester City.
