Rodgers says Iheanacho’s Substitution Vs Bournemouth is Not Negative.
Kelechi Iheanacho, who had a hand in Jamie Vardy’s opening goal in the 23rd minute was replaced by Dennis Praet.
Rodgers’s side controlled the game in the first half, but capitulated after the break, conceding four times.
The Northern Irishman said that the decision to replace Kelechi Iheanacho with Dennis Praet was a tactical one after Sunday’s game and he is not willing to change his mind.
Last week I was told we had the most impact from subs. A week later, I’m too negative. I made the change and primarily throughout the season, Kel (Kelechi Iheanacho) has been an impact player for us,” Rodgers told a news conference on Tuesday.
It wasn’t necessarily a negative substitution. I’ll go on the feel of the game. I’ll continue to analyse games as I do.”
Kelechi Iheanacho has scored five goals in 18 league appearances for the Foxes this season.
