Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers is confident that his striker Jamie Vardy, who hasn’t scored in his last nine games in all competition will rediscover his goals scoring form.
The 33-year-old Vardy was in great form at the beginning of the Premier League season finding the back of the net 17 times in 18 matches. He is the joint top goal scorer on 17 goals with Arsenal forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
“I have no doubt he’ll get the goals and it’s a matter of time,” said Rodgers ahead of Leicester’s League encounter against bottom of the table side Norwich City on Friday at Carrow Road.
Vardy’s last goal was back on December 21 in Leicester’s 3-1 defeat at the hands of PL champions Manchester City. The striker is three strikes away from reaching a century of goals in the PL
“Sometimes you get a run like it … you don’t force it, you don’t put the pressure on, “added Rodgers.
Since Vardy’s last goal, third-placed Leicester have been struggling as they have only won three games of their last nine league fixtures.
“If you’re needing 65 goals to get where you want to be, it’s no good having a striker with 40 when the others can’t contribute – it’s a team responsibility,” Rodgers added.
“Look at Roberto Firmino at Liverpool – he’s scored 10, but look at his influence and what he gives and allows to the other players … with Jamie, when he’s not scoring, he’s creating space for others, “concluded Rodgers.
