Brendan Rodgers do know the top level of Ademola Lookman but in some way we have seen a player stumbling at the last hurdle and going flat without helping the team to the final and great result.
Watching Ademola for Leicester and also at his previous clubs, he is a splitting image of Demarai Gray and you start to wonder if this will be the normal going forward or if he can become a steady deliver of great performances giving Leicester that special extra.
We all know what Jamie Vardy, N’Golo Kantè, Danny Drinkwater, Riyad Mahrez and several other players have done in the past and at present James Maddison and Youri Tielemans are the two that really has stepped up and showed class and quality being the players alongside Jamie Vardy and Harvey Barnes, being the edge that are winning the games for Leicester.
Going forward other players needs to step up and be there to get the results in the correct direction bringing in the points that the club need so desperately. Ademola Lookman is a player with most of the attributes to be that player, but so far he has not really lifted himself to a level that will see him as a pivotal player taking the responsibility so the progress is maintained.
We believe that Lookman could be in the team today and play a difference at some point and again bring on a steady performance that also will see Leicester bringing in the points at King Power and not just come home with an empty bag and another nice performance being one for the future.
In his previous seasons at Everton and Red Bull Leipzig he has in a way been a flop, and at Fulham last season putting on some good performances but again Fulham did get relegated and no one was really surprised. This is an evil route for a footballer and his progression so it’s time for a new player to step up and become that new pivotal player. We believe Ademola Lookman can become that player but time is running out.
He is a bit under pressure, but with the chances given to him by Brendan Rodgers he should be greatful and at the age of 24 he is at a stage of his career that can go either way, please bring it on and be that player over time that gives Leicester a new dimention. As the past have shown being in an Leicester environment can give you a route to the very top shelf of football.
This season Ademola Lookman has been involved in 14 games and scored 2 goals. He has shown glimps of his talent but it’s time to step up and grab that place in the team that makes him impossible to drop and that is by scoring goals and deliver assists that makes Leicester win games and not the opposite.
