Leicester boss Rodgers: We must manage Vardy freshness

Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers is eager to see Jamie Vardy maintain his "freshness".

Rodgers believes Vardy has benefited from his extended international exile following the Leicester striker's blistering start to the season.

He said: "It is an important point. You have to manage that freshness.

"He brings such a huge dimension to our team.

"He knows the stage of his career he is at. He manages his time to rest and recover, as a top professional would."
