Leicester boss Rodgers happy counting on Ward

Brendan Rodgers has backed Danny Ward as Leicester’s number one goalkeeper despite his “challenging start” to the season.

“When you concede goals, it’s more about the collective, it’s not just on a goalkeeper,” Rodgers said.

“Danny’s come in and it’s been a challenging start, but it’s been a challenging start for us all.

“When you lose games, every aspect is analysed and looked at. With him, it’s just reinforcing his confidence.

“He’s a top keeper, an international keeper, and I’m sure he will go on and get that consistency in how we would like to play.”
