Rodgers explains Iheanacho’s absence from Leicester first 11

Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers  has explained Super Eagles forward Kelechi Iheanacho’s absence from the Premier League side this season.

Iheanacho has seen 90 minutes of action only once in the league this season, failing to play in three of their last five league games.

As quoted by Leicester Mercury, Rodger said the Nigeria forward would get his time with the team.

According to him, Iheanacho has failed to have his run in the team because they have switched to a 4-2-3-1 which only allows one player in the attack.

“I think we’ve said it before: he’s best in the two, that’s clear, that’s when he’s been really good,” Rodgers said.

“He’s training well, he’s a great professional, Kels, and he knows he’s going to feature over the course of this period at some point.

“It’s not the goal scoring that’s been an issue for us. We’ve created chances, we’ve scored goals, and scored enough goals to win games.

“My immediate concern is more getting that collective back, and getting that solidity into the team again and knowing that all of these guys will get a chance to play at some point.”

Iheanacho was Leicester’s top scorer last season, scoring 19 goals in all competitions for the club.
