Leicester boss defends Cengiz over struggling form

Leicester City boss, Brendan Rodgers, has defended Cengiz Under over his struggling form.

The on-loan winger made just his second start in two months on Wednesday night as City beat Brighton 1-0 in the FA Cup.

“It’s not easy for him,” said Rodgers.

“In the first half he gave the ball away too cheaply and needed to work harder, so we enforced that at half-time.

“In the second half he played, after the first 10 or 15 minutes, we moved him up front to play alongside Kelechi so that took a little more responsibility away from him in terms of tracking and running, so he could be freer.

“He gave everything in the game, he was bright, his improvisation at the end along with Youri led to the winning goal.

“It’s not easy for him, he hasn’t played and featured a great deal but in the second half he worked harder.”
