#PremierLeagueStories – #BrendanRodgers praises #RyanBennett but insists no Contract talks will take place till season ends #LCFC

Brendan Rodgers has heaped praise on Ryan Bennett but insisted any talks about his long-term Leicester City future are on hold until the end of the season. The defender made his long-awaited debut for the Foxes against Crystal Palace but after Ben Chilwell was injured Leicester opted to switch to a back three where the defender performed admirably.

Brendan Rodgers said “We wanted to bring in a centre-half and who could offer us cover, who could fit into how we would work, I’ve known Ryan for a long time and saw the great job he did for Wolves, and took the opportunity to take him. He was very clear on the role, it was to come in and act as cover for us. He’s not been involved in too many squads, but it’s a testament of how focused he’s been, that although he hasn’t been involved, he’s never been disappointed. I felt that when we had the injury to Ben, we were playing a back three, so I felt Ryan could come in, because he knows the role having played it for the last few seasons at Wolves. He’s trained so hard, he’s a good professional, he’s a good guy. I always knew that if the time came for him to come in, he would be ready. And he came in and did very well. He’s got great game intelligence, he’s a warrior, he’s dominant in the air, he passes the ball well and he’s a good communicator. I thought he was very important for us in the win. That’s a testament to never getting disappointed because he hasn’t been playing. He proved to be fantastic cover for us and did a great job.”
