    I am actually more worried about Rodgers’ love for Ayoze Perez ahead of Iheanacho, agreed Barnes and Maddison are English darling hence sentimentally picked ahead of Iheanacho but what about the less productive Ayoze? Iheanacho will definitely benefit from a move away from that club in my own opinion

    With Nacho’s form especially from the second half of last season,you should expect his name to be the first on the list of attackers.He did finish stronger than Vardy.
    Nacho should be starting games he was one of the finest strikers in the premiership last season,his place shouldn’t be on the bench no that’s absolutely unjustifiable!

  • iheanacho senior will keep delivering he is one of the good players they have at the moment

    And now the same Ayoze Perez has been red-carded while Leicester City are now trailing by 2:0. Rodgers is his own best enemy

    I will advice Nacho to leave Leicester at the earliest opportunity.How can Thomas ,the Zambian and vardy that has lost sharpest be playing ahead of Iheanacho.what else does the coach want Nacho to prove before he believes in him

    Iheanacho is just being disrespected at Leicester City by Brendan Rogers… period!

  • Rodgers selects his favorite team players again! When I say that this coach doesn’t have what it takes to lead Leicester to the champions league people get angry. How can you explain for the past two season Leicester being in the top 4 only to lose out on the final day of the season.
    We all know he favours Certain players, this makes him predictable and coupled with the fact that most of his players arent physical players which makes them push overs when they encounter a physical team.
    Its unfortunate that iheanacho is still being used as a substitute/backup. Looks like rodgers wants to use him in fa cup, carling cup and europa competitions.
    Lets see how things will unfold for them this season.
