Brendan Rodgers not concerned with Leicester City boo boys

Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers is not concerned by the boos he received in their weekend loss draw with Burnley.

The former Liverpool boss was booed for his decision to substitute Ademola Lookman for James Maddison in the 78th minute when they were trailing 2-1 at home.

Jamie Vardy would equalize five minutes from time with his second of the game, but that was after some in the King Power Stadium had voiced their disapproval of Rodgers’ call.

After the game, Rodgers explained his decision and stated that Lookman was tiring despite not blaming the fans for their disapproval.

“I’ve been here nearly two-and-three-quarter-years, that’s probably the first time the fans have booed, so I’ll take that after that period of time. I would never judge supporters on airing their feelings in the stadium, that’s part of the decision-making as a manager.

“Some you get right, some you won’t, but ultimately you have to be decisive and try to affect the game to try to win the game," he said, per Leicestershire Live.

The Foxes who were one o the biggest spenders in the summer have started the season sluggishly where they find themselves in position 13th on the lob.
