Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers allays James Maddison injury fears

Leicester City head coach Brendan Rodgers has, late on Saturday, provided an update on the wellbeing of midfield standout James Maddison.

For those not aware, Maddison set alarm bells ringing across the Leicester fanbase earlier this evening.

This came upon the England international being forced into a premature departure from proceedings, late in his side’s hard-fought stalemate with Brentford.

After teeing up Harvey Barnes’ decisive equaliser, Maddison went to ground late in the action at the Gtech Community Stadium, before ultimately being replaced by Kelechi Iheanacho.

Speaking to the media on the back of the full-time whistle in west London, it therefore came as little surprise when the subject of his midfield conductor’s wellbeing was put to Brendan Rodgers.

And, in a boost for all associated with the Foxes, the club’s boss went on to quell any and all fears surrounding the possibility of a fresh injury problem for Maddison.

“It was just cramp. He hasn’t trained much, he’s been limited in training, so he’s done well to last through as long as he did today.”
