    I’m a critic of Nacho, not as a footballer but for bad career planning. Nacho has been at Leicester since 2017, he is one of the players with the longest presence in the Leicester squad. Other Leicester players like Daka, Maddison, Barnes, and Drewsbury-Hall arrived after Nacho. These players now command starting shirts while Nacho has consistently been a substitute – despite good performances, for 6 years.

    Until recently, Nacho was only playing in FA Cup and Carabao cup against lowly non-premier league opposition. The manager himself admitted that Nacho while a good footballer is not his type of player. So why does Nacho continue to allow his career to waste by staying at Leicester?

    Time for a football career is very short, lasting an average of about 10 years. Nacho has wasted 6 years of his career being a substitute at Leicester when he is one of Nigeria’s most talented footballers arguably at par with Osimhen. Lately starting with the FA cup, he is being given a starting shirt and he has proven to prospective clubs that he is still skillful.

    He shouldn’t waste the opportunity presented by his recent performances and should seek to leave Leicester by this summer, irrespective of the false assurances of the manager. Otherwise, he’ll end his career as a substitute.

      You have spoken my mind.
      Rodgers is a sentimental coach, making selection not based on records but sentiments.

      Nacho has better records than all other attackers in LFC and Rodger’s last hope, yet he benches Nacho. Why?

      I also thgt of why Nacho still remains at LFC. Last week, after Nacho’s splendid MOTM performance, I cursed that until Rodgers started Nacho in future matches, he would lose every game as in the precedent ones. Lucky Rodgers, he started Nacho who put up another MOTM performance, with Barnes and Maddison proudly or racially refusing to go to Nacho for the assists he gave them.

      Nacho, if you’re reading us, or ypur friends are, it’s time to leave LFC for a better club. Don’t show you’re desperate.

      BTW LFC should sack Rodgers, he is a mediocre coach.
