James Maddison: ‘Top’ Rodgers full of positivity

Leicester midfielder James Maddison is enjoying life under Brendan Rodgers and feels the Northern Irishman has brought a positive feeling back to the club.

They parted company with Claude Puel in February after a run of seven games without a victory across all competitions, losing six of them, and Rodgers was in charge by the time they took to the field against Watford on March 3.

Rodgers has picked up two victories from his three games at the helm and Leicester are back on track as they look to stay in the battle for seventh.

Their late win over Burnley before the international break has moved them within three points of seventh-placed Wolves, although the Molineux side do have a game in hand.

Maddison has stepped up his game since Rodgers’ arrival and he believes the manager is helping him to become a better player.

“He’s been very good, I feel like I’m in good form and it’s always nice to come to the international break in good form,” Maddison said.

“He’s a top manager and has a great CV. He’s come in, sat everyone down and has a way of playing. He’s been brilliant for the young lads and it’s been really positive.”

Leicester will be eager to continue building momentum, having won their last two, when they return to action against Bournemouth on Saturday.

The Foxes can be backed at 1.83 to win at the King Power Stadium, while Bournemouth are priced at 4.33 to come out on top, and the draw is available at 3.75.
