Nampalys Mendy is currently proving his quality on the pitch, Brendan Rodgers has said.
Mendy recently revealed that the midfielder is now performing to the level the club wants in the absence of Wilfred Ndidi.
According to Rodgers, Mendy is presently grasping his opportunity as a main cog in his starting line-up and he only sees him improving.
He added that Nampalys is tactically superb and he understands the role he is playing perfectly.
His words, “He is performing to the level the club wanted when they brought him in,”
“He’s a defensive midfield player, tactically very good, understands the role, and does a lot of dirty work for the team.
“Of course, before he’s played with Wilf [Ndidi], who’s something similar beside him and it’s probably where both those players need someone creative beside them.”
“I think because of Wilf’s form, certainly since I’ve been here, he’s been so consistent, Wilf, and it’s been difficult for Papy to play but it really shows you the mark of the guy – how well he has trained, how concentrated he has been. He never lost his focus and was always there if an opportunity came to give his very best.
“Now, what you’re seeing is a player that is getting a consistent run of games, and he’s really showing the quality player he is. I have been delighted with Papy. He gives the team stability with his experience and understanding of football and how we work. He has been crucial to how we play.”
