LEI 2-2 BUR: Kelechi Iheanacho "Sends Clear Message" To Brendan Rodgers After Playing For 28mins

Leicester City played out a 2-2 draw with Burnley on Saturday. Burnley had gone 2-1 up, thanks to Maxwell Cornet before Vardy snatched a point at the closing stages.

Iheanacho started the game on the bench and was introduced in the 62th minute. The Nigerian international provided the assist for the Foxes' second goal, and his presence made the Foxes' attack unpredictable.

Iheanacho is yet to start a Premier League game for Leicester this season, despite his impressive statistics towards the end of the season.

Last season, Iheanacho was Leicester's hero as he scored 18 goals in all competitions. This season, Iheanacho continued from where he left off last season, scoring the winning goal against Manchester City in the FA Cup Community Shield.

Iheanacho started in the EFL Cup against Millway on Wednesday and was on the score sheet, but once again had to settle for a place on the bench today.

Some top European scouts feel the Nigerian international has shown he is too good to be on the bench and, in my opinion, I think his 28 minutes performance today has sent a message to Brendan Rodgers that he has to be a guaranteed starter.
