Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers has provided an update on James Maddison’s well-being, following the midfielder’s early departure from proceedings against Wolverhampton Wanderers on Saturday.
Vardy makes a difference
Rodgers’ men were back in action recently.
The Foxes kicked off their 2021/22 Premier League campaign in a meeting with the Wolves at the King Power Stadium.
Without a doubt, Leicester headed to the procedures brimming with confidence, having surpassed champion Manchester City for Community Shield glory last weekend.
And, when all was said and done on Saturday, the club’s positive opening to the season just continued.
In a hard-fought 90 minutes, a solo goal from Jamie Vardy proved that the difference came late in the game in the East Midlands.
After reaching the end of Ricardo Pereira’s launch from the right, the Leicester main man directed an impressive effort towards the roof of the visiting net, securing all three points in the process:

However, as described above, on an encouraging afternoon for the Foxes on Saturday, Rodgers and company. they also received a kind of blow to the front of the staff.
This came just past the hour mark, when, hours after Ryan Bertrand was confirmed to have tested positive for Covid-19, James Maddison was forced out of action against the Wolves for a fitness issue. .
Brendan Rodgers, in turn, was inevitably asked for an update on his midfield director’s well-being after the full-time whistle at King Power.
And the Northern Irishman confirmed that Maddison was feeling “a little sore,” with medical tests scheduled to assess any potential damage over the next 48 hours.
James Maddison was “a little sore” before retiring at 62 minutes. The Leicester playmaker will be evaluated over the next 24 to 48 hours.
