Leicester City manager, Brendan Rodgers has come out to hail Ademola Lookman for his display vs Brighton & Hove Albion. He recently revealed that the forward’s cleverness and brightness definitely helped Leicester City in the game.
According to him, Lookman was absolutely outstanding in the match despite the defeat, and he sees him making more impact in the coming weeks.
Rodgers added that conceding first was difficult for his boys but they were unlucky to not get at least a point.
His words, “Lookman was outstanding. He gave us exactly what we needed.”
“He was playing inside, but coming wide and combining with Ricky. Just his cleverness and brightness in the game was so good. I was pleased with that.”
“It’s just the case of Ade coming in and getting used to how we play and you can see, day on day, game on game, he’s starting to make an impact. He’s certainly one we’ll consider to start during the week.”
“I thought we actually started the game well, in terms of control,”
“We had good positions on the field, without ever really threatening the goal, but I think we arrived into good areas and pushed them back.”
“That was the first 20-25 minutes, then I felt we started playing into areas where they would want us to go. We started to go central too early and they were able to break away from that. In the second half, we needed a little more penetration.”
“We went back to putting an actual winger on Ade, who I thought was outstanding when he came into the game. Obviously, we gave away a free-kick, which we could defend better.”
“That was early on in the second half, but from that moment on, we played with that personality that we need to see in the team and, by the end of the game, we were so unlucky to not pick up at least a point from it.”
“The first goal knocked us. We didn’t quite find a rhythm so we addressed it at half-time and I felt, in the second half, we were so much better in the speed of our game, the balance of the team, and we should have got something.”
