The Nigeria international admitted the former Celtic and Liverpool boss has made much of an impact on his career than his previous managers and hopes to continue his development.

“My understanding of the game is much better now. I see the game differently to what I used to.
‘’I learned from other managers as well so no disrespect to them, but this manager has made me understand more about the game, like the space available on the pitch.
“I feel like I’ve really improved since I first joined Leicester. [Rodgers has given me] the belief and understanding.
“When I came to Leicester, I didn’t have much of the ball but now I find myself in situations where I have more time with the ball.
”That comes from the teaching and the understanding that the manager has given us.
