‘He Worked Hard’- Rodgers Offers Support For Iheanacho After Forward’s Dismal Showing  Against Wolves

Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers has defended Kelechi Iheanacho after the Nigerian not too impressive performance in Sunday’s 0-0 away draw against Wolverhampton Wanderers, reports Completesports.com.

Iheanacho attracted criticisms from Leicester City fans as a result of his failure to make much impact in the game.

The Nigeria international was on target in Leicester City’s 2-0 away win at Fulham last week but failed to build on that performance at the Molineux.

The 24-year-old was replaced by Jamie Vardy in the 61st minute.

Rodgers expressed satisfaction with the striker’s performance and praised him for his work ethic.

“He worked hard, didn’t have too many opportunities but he gave us everything. He’s not used to playing games close together,” Rodgers said after the game.

Iheanacho has scored once in 12 league appearances for Leicester this season.

    Few days ago someone here was quick to say Iheanacho had silenced his critics with his first premier league goal half way through the season….now he had a dissapointing game what have u got to say now? Iheanacho is just not at the level he was at man city….complacency has eaten this man up and big boy syndrome dey affect am.. No fighing spirit and can’t even shed that pot belly lol.

  • Did vardy or ayose also score? They did not. So lets not place any fault on iheanachos foot alone. They got an away draw which is better than a defeat.
