Leicester City boss, Brendan Rodgers is still insisting that Nigerian star, Kelechi Iheanacho is in his plans.
The former City striker squandered a massive chance to aid Leicester City share the points against his old team.
That miss was the highlight of the teenager’s poor form this season, having netted just twice in 35 matches.
Brendan Rodgers though, has still not ruled him out of his plans.
His words, “Yes he is [part of my plans] ”
“He’s just had his first season adapting to a new club. Then when you’re playing or challenging one of the best strikers in the league, it’s difficult.
“Kel will come back into pre-season, have a really good pre-season, gain more confidence, work hard and hopefully come out of that with a renewed motivation to show his qualities.”
“I’ve been impressed with him,”
“His appetite, his work, and then in games, where he has come on, whether it’s for five minutes or for 15 minutes, he’s impacted the game and done very well, and he nearly did again, it’s just unfortunate.
“He knows he should score, in big games you don’t get many chances and he has the quality, but it just didn’t happen for him.
“He’s a fantastic young player and hopefully he can show that over his time at Leicester.”
