Leicester manager Rodgers now believing in Iheanacho

Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers is now having confidence in Kelechi Iheanacho as the player continues to impress.

Iheanacho made his first English Premier League start of the season on Sunday, and he proved his worth by scoring a goal and providing an assist in a 4-1 win over Aston Villa.

That will be Iheanacho's second EPL goal this season after scoring in the previous game.

Rodgers said the Nigerian forward is now settling into being a Leicester City player.

"I thought he (Iheanacho) was great. He played the role of how we wanted him to play. He creates Jamie’s first goal, gets the second one with a good finish,” Rodgers told LFC TV.

“I just think with Kels now that he’s settling into being a Leicester City player... He’s come in for that first year, he was playing second fiddle to Jamie without many appearances. Probably before when he’s come into games.

“When you’re not playing so much, sometimes you can force it. You come and try to force the performance.”

Leicester City are second in the English Premier League table behind Liverpool.
