Leicester City’s Rodgers reveals why he substituted Lookman against Burnley

The Foxes’ manager comes out to defend his decision to withdraw the 23-year-old winger despite his impressive show

Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers has explained why he took the decision to substitute Ademola Lookman during their 2-2 draw against Burnley on Saturday.


The 23-year-old started in the game at King Power Stadium but was pulled out with 12 minutes left to the final whistle, to be replaced by James Maddison but the decision by Rodgers was not received well by the Foxes’ fans who booed it.

Burnley had taken the lead in the 12th minute after Jamie Vardy scored an own goal but he responded to make it 1-1 for the home team in the 37th minute. Burnley restored their lead in the 40th minute through Maxwel Cornet.
