Leicester boss Rodgers: Maddison and Fofana very important for us

Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers has no doubts about keeping James Maddison and Wesley Fofana.

Rodgers included Maddison in his starting line-up to face Brentford at the King Power Stadium on Sunday.

Speaking ahead of Leicester's contest against the Bees, Rodgers was asked whether Maddison was fully focused on the job at hand, saying: “Yes 100%. I think it's always a challenging time until the window shuts.

He continued: "There's lots of speculation and gossip around players leaving but I always assess the players every day. If the mentality doesn't change and they have that commitment then that's all you want. So both players [Maddison and Fofana] are very important for us and I look forward to seeing them play."
