Demarai Gray has praised Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers despite the fact he has handed him just one Premier League start this season, as per the Daily Mirror.
Gray has had to be patient this term, with the likes of Harvey Barnes and Ayoze Perez impressing on the wings and limiting him largely to substitute appearances.
And the former Birmingham winger said: “We attack defend properly and that’s where we’re evolving as a team. It’s all from the training ground. The gaffer gives us all the information, we’ve just got to put it in place. I’m feeling good.
“I’m in a good bit of form. Whether it’s starting or off the bench, I’ve just got to try to help the team. My game is to make things happen and do whatever I can to help get the ball in the net, if not put it in myself. I want to start games but I understand how it is, the team’s doing well. All I care about is the three points and climbing up the table.”
TBR’s View – Gray must look at Barnes’ progress with envy but he will get chances
Harvey Barnes’ early recall from loan at West Brom in January and James Maddison’s occasional reinvention as a left winger under Rodgers has provided greater competition for places out wide.
Gray has been at the club longer than Barnes but has seen his fellow young winger race ahead of him in the pecking order.
That must sting but Gray looks to have the right attitude and as he eludes to, he can’t really complain about not starting when the sides Rodgers is picking are winning on a regular basis.
