“He (Iheanacho) has played better in a two rather than up there on his own. Kel’s a specific type of striker,”Rodgers was quoted by Leicester Mercury after the game.
“When I have gone for pace, which I normally have through the central area, it’s been Patson or Vards who I’ve played. Obviously if ever I’ve needed to swivel it to two up front, then he’s been a part of that.
“But he’s a really good option for us whether he begins on the bench or he starts. Sometimes, Kel comes into the game and is amazing and then, he’ll do something in the same game which is not so good.
“But what I always get from him is 100 per cent commitment. I’m always pretty sure whether he starts or comes off the bench, he always gives his very best.”
