Soyuncu might have been set for a loan move had it not been for the sale of Harry Maguire to Manchester United this month.

"He made a great first appearance," said Rodgers. "In my time while I've been here, I've recognised that he's a very good player.

"He's had that first year where he's had to adapt, where there were a lot of good players playing in front of him - Jonny (Evans) and Harry (Maguire) and Wes (Morgan).

"But you could see in his training and how focused he was that if the opportunity came then he could take it and I felt he was outstanding last weekend - he and Jonny were.

"Firstly, he can defend and he's aggressive. He wants to attack the ball. But he's a modern-day centre-half where he's comfortable on the ball and can read the game.

"I thought he did very well but he needs to be consistent and show what a really good young player he is."

<![CDATA[Leicester boss Rodgers: Lampard perfect for this Chelsea team]]> <p>Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers is full of praise for Chelsea manager Frank Lampard.</p><p>Leicester go to Chelsea on Sunday.</p><a href='https://www.tribalfootball.com/articles/leicester-boss-rodgers-lampard-perfect-for-this-chelsea-team-4293211?utm_source%3Dmediafed%26utm_medium%3Drss-feed%26utm_campaign%3DFeed-Latest%2BArticles%2Bfor%2BLeicester%2BCity'>Read more on Tribal Football</a> Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers is full of praise for Chelsea manager Frank Lampard.

Leicester go to Chelsea on Sunday.

Rodgers said, said: I think Frank has done very well since he has gone in.

"You can't forget this is a team that has finished third last season and won the Europa League. So it tells you everything about the talent that is in the squad.

But I think Frank is perfect for it. Him, Jodie and Joe Edwards who are around the first team they understand the fabric of Chelsea and what it is about.

"I have been really impressed watching the team. Okay, they have lost their first couple of games but the tempo of their game is good. They are obviously going to play at a higher intensity and tempo in their game. Frank understands the policy at the club, how it works and will be looking to bring in some of the young players which he has done.

"He has given them an opportunity. You have to admire that. People have always looked at Chelsea and wondered if they are going to get a chance. For whatever reason they haven't got the opportunity. Frank is now there with Jodie and Joe and will give them that chance to flourish. Then they are always going to have top class players around that."

Former Celtic boss Rodgers has paid tribute to King, who has left Leicester to join Rangers on loan.

I spoke to Andy a few weeks ago," Rodgers said. "I have known Andy since he was 15 and his time at Chelsea. He has been a great servant here for many years.

"Over the course of the summer I said if I didn't feel he was going to be a part of the squad I wanted to tell him as early as I could.

Him going to Rangers I wasn't aware of. It was something that all happened very quickly for us."

Former Celtic boss Rodgers told King he was free to go out on loan and the Wales international has signed a season-long deal at Ibrox.

King said: I've not really spoken to him about coming here specifically but I will do.

A man who was so successful in Scottish football with the titles he won, I will call him and ask him about life in Glasgow, what Scottish football's like and stuff like that. But I have not really had the chance to do that."

King had no concerns about Rodgers sanctioning the move to Celtic's rivals.

No, not at all," the midfielder said. I am really grateful for him being clear with me a couple of weeks ago.

He said it was up to me to try and find a new challenge and fortunately I have managed to do that - a massive challenge at a massive football club and one I am delighted to be at."

The 30-year-old has joined the Gers on a season-long loan deal.

He said: "It is more positive news. The opportunity came up to get Andy King in the last 48 hours and I jumped at the chance for numerous reasons.

"He is a winner, a Premier League winner and he has numerous caps at international level.

"Over the course of the last 14 months I have been trying to build a squad but a lot of players are inexperienced and young and they need guidance and leadership in the dressing room so it was a no brainer and financially as well it makes total sense."

<![CDATA[Petit: Chelsea MUST beat Leicester]]> <p>Former Chelsea star Emmanuel Petit says this week's clash with Leicester City in a must-win.</p><p>Wednesday's loss to Liverpool made it two losses from the first two games of the season for Frank Lampard's men.</p><a href='https://www.tribalfootball.com/articles/petit-chelsea-must-beat-leicester-4293125?utm_source%3Dmediafed%26utm_medium%3Drss-feed%26utm_campaign%3DFeed-Latest%2BArticles%2Bfor%2BLeicester%2BCity'>Read more on Tribal Football</a> Former Chelsea star Emmanuel Petit says this week's clash with Leicester City in a must-win.

Wednesday's loss to Liverpool made it two losses from the first two games of the season for Frank Lampard's men.

They will face Leicester at Stamford Bridge this weekend, and Petit says the Blues must collect all three points.

He told Paddy Power: "The game against Leicester on Sunday is must-win for Lampard. They have to win it, it's so important for the players and their confidence but also for Lampard's confidence too. After United I believe the players were thinking about what a big loss Eden Hazard is, and how they would compete without replacing him.

"But after the Super Cup and a win against Leicester can turn that confidence around, they have a quality team with quality players and Lampard is using youth too which is good to see. Jorginho had by far his best game in a Chelsea shirt since he arrived and to do well those performances need to be kept up.

"Failure to beat Leicester will mean people will start asking questions of Lampard, it will put much more pressure on him and on the players and questions will be on the table about whether Lampard is right for the job. That in turn puts more stress in the dressing room and more trouble for the manager.

"The pressure will be so huge on their shoulders if they don't get the result, so they have to start well and win convincingly. It'll buy them time to work on the team and bring back confidence, but after the Liverpool game I would say they have good reason to believe they will win. If they keep playing like that, they will games and that's a fact.

"For me, they have the players to do well in the Premier League this season, they will be one of the teams to beat though I can't say the same for the Champions League. Lampard received some criticism from Jose Mourinho when they played Chelsea, but it was his job to comment and be honest about what he felt.

"He will realise that he will get a lot of opinions now and people telling you what you should and shouldn't do, people pointing in your face and telling you that you are wrong, but it's the same for all big clubs. You will face criticism as Chelsea manager."

The former was linked with a move to Leicester City to replace Harry Maguire.

But when Burnley rejected any interest from Leicester in Tarkowski, the player did not down tools or kick up a fuss. And Mee is impressed by the attitude of his teammate.

"You never know what can happen," said Mee to reporters.

"Obviously there was a lot of talk around Tarky. I've said to him, 'I'm glad you've stayed.' He focused really well and he showed that on Saturday.

"He had the attitude of what will be, will be. He never once stepped out of line. You see other players at other clubs, you hear about something and they can go a bit off the rails.

"He's stuck to it and trained really well and stuck with the group. He's fully focused on playing for us."

Welsh star King will give Gerrard the added midfield options he desires in his bid to bring silverware to Ibrox.

King, 30, has found game time limited at the King Power Stadium over the last two seasons and has spent time on loan at Swansea and Derby.

He jumped at the chance to open talks with Gers, with opportunities under Brendan Rodgers looking unlikely following the deadline-day arrival of Belgian Dennis Praet, says the Daily Record.

King, capped 50 times by Wales, played 24 times for Leicester when they won the Premier League.
