Leicester boss Rodgers happy to see Daka score

Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers was happy to see Patson Daka score in their 3-3 preseason draw with QPR.

Rodgers was pleased to see new signing Daka open his account with a well-taken effort – Leicester's second of the afternoon – after impressive midfield play from Marc Albrighton.

"It was great ability by Albrighton," the Northern Irishman told LCFC TV. "From wide, he's cut inside and he's made a great pass. He's always looking to penetrate the line with the pass and Patson, when he's away, it was like everything we've seen when we've watched him.

"As soon as he's in that goalscoring position, he's so calm and not even thinking, even though he's right footed, he just slots it away with his left foot.

"You see that natural goalscoring instinct and then his speed to get to the ball for the penalty, I never thought he was going to get there, but he showed great pace. He won the penalty, so it was a good performance by him.

"I think that's what he is, he's a goalscorer. I thought him and Kels combined very, very well. They were looking for each other and some of their play was exceptional. The goalscorers, I think when it hits the back of the net, it gives them confidence and gives them that energy."
