  • Rodgers has finally shown why he said ‘he won’t change his mind about Nacho’.
    benching a striker like nacho for 90mins means there is an untold side of the story.
    the only thing that will make me advice nacho to stay is UCL Football(if they qualify).if not he should go to a club that the manager will have faith in him.

  • Even if they qualify for champions League n Nacho stays, he won’t get game time. It surprises me that people still don’t understand that Nacho not playing, has nothing to do with him not being good enough but simply because he is not Rodgers type of player irrespective of Nachos first touch on the ball problem. Reading Rodgers last comment before yesterday’s game, I knew straight away Nacho was not gonna get game time in yesterdays game, as Rodgers will wanna show the world he is the boss. The atmosphere around Nacho n Rodgers is already polluted and thats not good for a young talent like Nacho. It’s now become a case whereby for anything good to happen for Nacho whilst still at Leicester, Rodgers must have to be kicked out otherwise Nacho’s talent will continue to surpressed under Rodgers. THE CHOICE IS NACHO TO MAKE BUT HE MUST BE AWARE, MANY MORE PLAYERS ARE KNOCKING ON THE DOOR OF THE SE.

  • Rodgers would still be saked at the end of the season. Mark my word! Totethan would lash their ass in their next game. Keeping iheancho on the bench to prove a point is only to his detriment. If I’m iheacho ones he puts me in when he would be needing goals against totethan I would surely disappoint him
