Leicester boss Rodgers: Maddison needs time, patience, support

Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers insists James Maddison will find his best form soon.

Rodgers believes James Maddison just needs time after a poor start to the season extended into Leicester's 2-1 defeat at Brighton – where the midfielder was taken off at half-time.

“(You need to give Maddison) Time, patience, support. It's understanding that no matter how confident someone is and how good a player they are, they will always have a period in their career where confidence isn't quite there," Rodgers insisted.

“You always have to take them back to the basics. You've got to work your socks off and work even harder. I always feel that if you do that, that gives you confidence. I've seen it so often.

“He's a brilliant talent and has played many fantastic games for Leicester and he will do that. He's just in a little moment where it's not quite happening for him."
