Leicester boss Rodgers: Pereira as good as any fullback in Prem

Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers is delighted with the form of Ricardo Pereira.

Indeed, he says Pereira is as good as any fullback in the country.

“He's up there with the best fullbacks in the league," Rodgers said.

“I worked with young Trent at Liverpool and he's been sensational since he has broken into the team.

“Kyle [Walker] obviously at Manchester City. He's certainly a boy who is up there. You see him go forward and he's so fluent in his running."
