Leicester City duo, Kelechi Iheanacho and Wilfred Onyinyen Ndidi have received an assurance that they will ‘take the right steps forward’ under their new club manager, Brendan Rodgers.
Iheanacho and Ndidi will be excited to note that Rodgers is already talking about a new lease of life, following their former Liverpool gaffer’s arrival in place of sacked Claude Puel.
Rodgers, who ws until last weekend with Celtic of Scotland, where he masterminded the shock exit of former Super Eagles defender, Efe Ambrose, has already stepped down to business at King Power Stadium, following his appointment at the start of the week.
Rodgers steps in, after Puel led The Foxes to a 4-1 loss at home against Crystal Palace last weekend, and the big news for all the players is that they are set to move forward with better results coming their way.
The first sign of a glorious turn around for the former English Premier League champions came Tuesday night, when they beat visiting Brighton & Hove Albion 2-1, with Ndidi playing for the duration.
In the encounter at King Power Stadium, Iheanacho got off the bench to replace scorer of one of their goals on the night, Jamie Vardy on the dot of 90 minutes, but the UAE 2013 FIFA U-17 World Cup gold medalist and most valuable player will now pray for more playing time under Rodgers.
Iheanacho’s enthusiasm would be boosted by sweet words from the Northern Irishman, who signed a contract until June 2022, as the new man in charge, who has also handled Swansea City, promised better days ahead of the team and their supporters.
Rodgers pledged: “I’ll give my life to make the supporters proud of their club. Together, we’ll be stronger.
“I’m looking forward to working with the players, staff and supporters to make the right steps forward.”
