Rodgers: Kelechi Iheanacho caused Tottenham problem despite 3-1 defeat

Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers praise Kelechi Iheanacho despite Foxes’ 3-1 defeat to Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League on Sunday evening.

Heung-min Son, with a magnificent shot from start, put the game past Leicester City’s reach in the 79th minute but Iheanacho snatched a reassurance in stoppage time.

The Nigeria international diminished the deficiency by clearing a low effort inside the near post.

Rodgers labelled Iheanacho’s goal ‘a very good goal’, before going on to praise the work rate of the number 14, who was picked in the starting lineup ahead of fit again Jamie Vardy, ahead of Thursday’s Europa Conference League seminal second leg clash at AS Roma.

“It was a very good strike and a very good goal,” Rodgers said to Leicester City’s official website.

“He caused them a problem. He lost one or two balls which he can be better with, but overall, he kept fighting and running. It was a very, very good goal.”

Iheanacho has been involved in seventeen goals this season, including nine (4 goals, 5 assists) in the Premier League.
