Brendan Rodgers reacted to Kelechi Iheanacho’s hat-trick against Sheffield United on Sunday.
Kelechi Iheanacho scored his first hat-trick for Leicester City against Sheffield United. The Nigerian striker scored in the 39th, 69th, and 78th minute.
Speaking to the club’s website, Brendan Rodgers stated that he is an outstanding player that offered more than his goals.
“He was outstanding, not just in his goals, but his overall work-rate.
“He had a big responsibility today, in terms of dropping into space, finding that pocket that was just on the back of the midfield, and I thought he did that very, very well.
“He’s a great guy. He deserved the three goals. He had one or two other opportunities, but we’re all delighted for him.”
Kelechi Iheanacho has scored six goals in sixteen Premier League games.
