Brendan Rodgers is defending Kelechi Iheanacho, the forward from Leicester City after he had been criticized by Gernot Rohr, the Nigeria coach in the time of the international break.
The twenty-two-year-old player is being criticized because of his below the par performance in the country and club colors. He is still to start a match for Foxes since the early half of December. He hadn’t been a part of the set of Super-Eagles which defeated Egypt and Seychelles after a dismal display against South Africa in the last year.
In order to get back in the frame of the national team, Rohr had given advice to the former striker of Manchester United to be more professional and serious. However, his Leicester coach has given a different assessment.
Rodger said that when he saw his play at Manchester City, he used to be a young player which could have an effect on the game. Thereafter, he came over to Leicester with a large price tag. He says that what he saw in training and when he spoke to him, he displayed an excellent appetite and willingness to get better. Rodger states that they have a culture to improve the players and to make them better. Kelechi Iheanacho has responded quite well to that.
Only afforded 7 minutes since Brenden Rodgers took over with Premier League goal in this season, the reputation of Jamie Vardy’s, and the form means Kelechi Iheanacho for the showings on the training ground, need to be patient for his chance and have to pounce with their arrival.
