Leicester City Manager Speaks On Iheanacho’s Attitude
Leicester City manager, Brendan Rodgers, has backed Kelechi Iheanacho, after the forward was criticised by Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr, during the international break.
Gernot Rohr had left the Leicester City striker out of his squad that tackled Seychelles and Egypt after a poor showing against South Africa last year.
The Super Eagles coach advised Iheanacho to become more “serious” and “professional”.
However, his coach at club level, Rodgers said: “When I saw him at Manchester City, he was always a young player that could come in and affect the game.”
“Then he’s come here with a big price-tag.
“From what I’ve seen in training and when I’ve spoken to him, he has shown a wonderful appetite and enthusiasm to get better.
“We have a culture where we want to improve players and make them better and he’s responded very well to that,” Rodgers said on Friday ahead of their Bournemouth fixture.
