Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers insists fans will soon see Patson Daka.

Rodgers has explained why he's held back the summer signing at today's Europa League presser for their clash with Napoli.

He said, "He's played European games so he understands the competition. As time goes by with him, you'll see him become a better player when he adapts to how we work. But he's settled in very well."

Rodgers added: "We've been unfortunate [with injuries] over the last couple of seasons, but it's more than that. When you have success, you want to keep on winning. It's not just talent, it's about spirit and mentality. This competition is very important."
