Leicester City boss, Brendan Rodgers has said he has plans to revive misfiring striker, Kelechi Iheanacho and restore his lost confidence. Kelechi Iheanacho Iheanacho through the season failed to measure up, scoring just twice for Leicester in 36 games. He had a good chance to redeem himself against Manchester City in a highly heated game, but he failed to find the net, drawing more criticisms. Rodgers though admits that a loan switch so the 22-year-old can get more game time, start scoring some goals again and get his confidence back, could be an option for him, believes there is still plenty of potential to improve and develop the young City striker. “It’s a possibility, it’s not something I’m thinking about,” said Rodgers.

However, my plan for him is to build up his confidence in this last period. “Then hopefully in pre-season, he’ll hit the back of the net and get the sensation of scoring again. And by the start of the season we have a player who has the confidence.”
