Brendan Rogers explains why Iheanacho was substituted in 4-1 los to Bournemouth

Leicester City manager, Brendan Rogers has explained why Kelechi Iheanacho was substituted in the 4-1 defeat to Bournemouth.

Iheanacho was substituted at half time while Leicester City was leading 1-0. He played a vital role in the Jamie Vardy opener.

Dennis Praet was brought in as his replacement at the Vitality Stadium leading to the 4-1 defeat.

Speaking after the game, Rogers said he substituted Iheanacho for a midfielder so as to provide defensiveness to their game.

He told a post-match conference: “(Iheanacho) wasn’t having one of his better games.

“The issue for us defensively was on the side of the pitch, because there was a lot of space for Wilf and Youri to cover,” he said.
