Foxes of Leicester detail a much-needed Leicester City injury boost. The Foxes have received positive update on Victor Kristiansen’s return date.

Good news. Kristiansen is set to be available to play very soon. In fact, there is kind of confirmation that the quality leftback could make his comeback against Brentford in the Premier League on Saturday.

Denmark boss Kasper Hjulmand said that the defender is likely to feature for Leicester this weekend whilst simultaneously naming him in the Danish squad. At first, Kristiansen was expected to be out until April.

Leicester desperately require EPL points. That fact is unavoidable. If the east Midlands side fail to win again this campaign, they’ll almost certainly be relegated to the Championship. However, I do not see that unwelcome as well as undesirable scenario occurring: the LCFC roster is more than talented to survive the drop.

Although, the question really should be: is the man steering the ship appropriate for the job? I am not so sure. I cannot wrap my head around Brendan Rodgers as a manager; when considering the Northern Irishman as a coach, I find pinpointing his skills or appropriate influence easier to digest. Even recently, former Leicester staff member and high profile retired player Kolo Toure attested to the ex-Liverpool chief’s calibre as a gaffer.

If the King Power club are to avoid placing in the English top-flight bottom three come the end of the season, Rodgers must motivate his team adequately. We have witnessed public man management issues regarding centreback Jannik Vestergaard already, those incidents must cease for the good of the side. The former has to make the right calls on the sideline, too. An impressive Bees outfit is the ideal challenge to gauge how much this group of Foxes want to remain in the elite division and whether or not the head coach is capable of keeping them up.
