Speaking after the game Rodgers praised his players for their performance in the game.

“Our football was outstanding, we could have had more if we had been,” Birminghammail.co.uk quoted Rodgers as saying.

“Tete is an out and out winger and he was outstanding, he gives us the space in the middle by playing so wide.

“Second half we were solid, tight and organised against a team whose recent record has been very good. There is no doubt about the mentality of this team. We were calm when we came under pressure and we deserved the win.”

    Where is the praises he lavishes on Iheanacho?

    You guys can just type things that don’t exist.

    Meanwhile, Iheanacho scored a goal and made two assist but it was Tete the coach was praising… Iheanacho better go to another club.

      I do think that it is time for senior man and Ndidi to move on from this team.They are far too comfortable in their comfort zone.Initially they were after the residency rule that will qualify them for the British passport to secure their retirement.They both have it now.It is time to take their careers to the next level by trying out in the Spanish, German or Italian leagues particularly Senior man.

      How can you score a goal with 2 assists yet the coach prefers to talk about Tete?

        I was really shock when I saw it, a man of the match performance and you choose to talk about someone else, the coach is a joker.

        Ndidi and Kel deserves better

  • Rodgers doesn’t want to admit what everyone already knows and that is he is responsible for Leicesters predicament. His preference for James vardy and patson daka has not yielded much results. With the number of games they have played together, they don’t have the number of goals or wins to back up the coaches preferences. So now that iheanacho is showing everyone that his preferences has been wrong all along, he doesn’t want to acknowledge the guy’s performance. I hope iheanacho scores more goals and gets snapped up by another team that really appreciate what he can bring to a team.
