Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers admits cutting veteran striker Jamie Vardy out of the club is not an issue. But believe that the players understand well
The 35-year-old has been the club’s top scorer for seven years in a row but has not scored in six Premier League games this season, with Rodgers admitting the removal of Vardy. Leaving the ufabet team is difficult. But it has to be gradually adjusted because the players are old.
“Jamie understands better where he is,” Rodgers said. “He’ll be 36 in January and knows he can’t stay forever. We just have to manage him as best as we can.”
“When I came here in 2019 people were going to check his name out. which has had wonderful years with him. It’s a challenge for every player. Especially with top players.”
“By the time you are not as active as before. It’s always something that is difficult to accept. However, you must try to support your team and teammates and do your best when asked to play. He did everything he could to take care of himself.”
However, the Leicester boss thinks Vardy can embrace his reduced role and the team desperately need his contribution. The striker has yet to score this season but will overtake Kasper Schmeichel’s club record of 276 Premier League appearances for Leicester if he features on Saturday evening evening.
‘The two guys (Daka and Iheanacho) did very well in the last game but you can never write off Jamie because he still has that hunger, drive and desire,’ added Rodgers.
‘I don’t think I can expect of him what he was doing five years ago. We just have to maximise what he has, whether that’s for an hour, 90 minutes or 30 minutes off the bench. All I want from Jamie or any player is that they put their foot to the floor every single minute.’
