Rodgers Talks Up Iheanacho, Vardy Partnership Ahead Man City Clash

Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers has discussed the partnership between Kelechi Iheanacho and Jamie Vardy ahead of Saturday’s Premier League clash against Manchester City at the King Power Stadium, reports Completesports.com.

The duo have formed a formidable partnership in recent weeks following the absence of the duo James Maddison and Harvey Barnes due to injuries.

Iheanacho has scored seven goals in his last four appearances across all competitions for the Foxes.

“It just depends on the plan that you’re looking to put in place. We look at where we can gain advantages. If you are going to play them and think that is the best way of scoring goals, then you have to find a way to get them in the team,”Rodgers told a press conference on Thursday.

“Jamie hasn’t scored in a few games, but his movement and assists have been first class.

” He gives Kels space. They have been outstanding together. Hopefully they can play if they play at the weekend.”

    Fact is Iheanacho wasn’t feed the ball by Osimhen in the games against Benin and Lesotho when Osimhen was with the ball and Iheanacho was in a better position to score, but Iheanacho did not mind and still feed Osimhen the ball to score. I remember how he had a 1-2 with Osimhen against Benin that almost resulted to a goal for Osimhen and how he assisted Osimhen’s disallowed goal against Lesotho before he also assisted Osimhen’s only goal in the same game. But at Leicester, both Vardy and Iheanacho has been unselfish, as they have always located each other with the ball when the other was in a better position to score.

    • You have been very unfair with Osimhen. We are all human and cannot be perfect every time. But to accuse Osimhen of being selfish is laughable. He is one of the the most selfless players in SE, not a typical selfish number 9 who wants to have a shot at goal every time. What do you have to say about his assist for Etebo? Another striker would have tried his luck regardless yet he gave Etebo that beautiful pass.

      Please let’s not start creating insinuations that can cause disunity when there is actually no cogent basis for such, simply because of individual prejudice or because we are not happy a player did not score. Nacho did not score any goal in the two matches but we deeply appreciate his contribution. And on a general note, the whole team should be commended.

    • How come Nigerians talk like this. What’s wrong with us. I can’t believe you’re saying what you just said. Does oshimen look to you like a selfish player. Common let’s stop talking like this. Haba. @Chuka you may just need to delete your comment.
