Smith stopped the Leicester team’s scheduled recovery day on Tuesday after their 5-3 loss to Fulham on Monday brought them closer to relegation.
With three games remaining, the Foxes are two points from safety and third from the bottom of the Premier League.
Instead of taking the day off, Smith led a meeting at Leicester’s training facility and believes that the team received his message before Monday’s crucial match with Liverpool.
I don’t like things to drag on, therefore it was supposed to be a day off. We entered and organized it. The proof will come on Monday, but I felt it went well,” Smith added.
In this game, they have always taught me that you cannot go back and undo what has happened; instead, you can learn from it, make the necessary corrections, and rapidly move on.
Since taking over for the fired Brendan Rodgers in April, former Aston Villa and Norwich manager Smith has had trouble keeping Leicester out of danger of falling into the Championship.
The 2016 Premier League winners have lost their last three games and are in danger of dropping to the lower division.
“It’s pointless for us to think about the Fulham game for another two to three days.Smith stated, “I wanted to put it to rest.
It was important to get that information out there quickly, speak with the guys, and then continue.
“I did the talking and told them what I expected in certain situations of the Fulham game, what we needed to do better, and what we will do better going forward.”
