No need to worry about Kyogo

Don’t worry about Kyogo…

There’s been a lot of talk lately regarding Kyogo and his role under Brendan Rodgers. It’s been suggested that the Japanese striker is struggling to adapt to his new role under the Irishman.

Admittedly Kyogo has been below par by his own high standards, and hasn’t been the same threat he’s been in recent campaigns. Is that down to Brendan’s instructions that he play a more withdrawn role, one that is much different to his more advanced role under Ange?

Possibly, but it’s still not stopped him producing the goods this season. His total of eight goals in 20 games in all competitions is still not a bad return. Kyogo was absolutely sensational last campaign netting an impressive 34 goals in all competitions as we won the treble.

He is perhaps a victim of his own success, and the supporters are expecting a lot more from him, Kyogo is probably expecting too much of himself. But he or the supporters needn’t worry, he will soon adapt to his new role under Brendan. He’s a talented player and will soon be as prolific as ever.

So any talk of Kyogo struggling is complete nonsense. Give him time, he will adapt, he’s too good not to.

Watch he prove that against St Johnstone at McDiarmid Park, Sunday lunchtime…

    Given his movement and eye for goal, I would prefer if those around Kyogo adapted to him rather than him adapting to them.
