Leicester boss Rodgers confident Maddison will rediscover best form

Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers is confident James Maddison will rediscover his best form.

Maddison has not been at his best this term and after losing his place in the starting XI for last weekend's 2-2 draw with Burnley, he was also named among the substitutes for the 1-0 defeat by Legia Warsaw in the Europa League on Thursday.

"We've spoken [about it]," said Rodgers. "He understands where he's at and he's got that feeling himself. So it's just connecting again to the big picture.

"These are young players and, for some of them, this is the first bump in the road they've had.

"If you think of James's career since he was 16-17, he's always played regularly and the moves he's had have been great. But football is not always like that.

"However he's responded really well and is working really hard. I've no doubt that by the end of the season he will have made a great contribution."
