Iheanacho Will Get His Opportunity In Leicester City – Brendan Rodgers

Manager Brendan Rodgers has insisted Kelechi Iheanacho would get his chance at Leicester City this season.

The Nigeria international was the Foxes’ hero last season – scoring 19 goals in all competitions as the King Power Stadium giants emerged as champions of the FA Cup.

That feat earned him the club’s top-scorers prize with his wonder strike against Crystal Palace in April getting recognised as Leicester City Goal of the Season.

This season, however, the former Manchester City prodigy has largely played as a substitute due to his poor form in front of goal.

For his contribution, he boasts three goals and five assists, averaging a goal involvement every 104 minutes, a far cry from Patson Daka’s one every 91 minutes.

Nonetheless, his boss at Leicester assured that he will get playing opportunities as the 2021-22 season progresses.

“I think we’ve said it before: he’s best in a two, that’s clear, that’s when he’s been really good,” Rodgers was quoted by Leicester Mercury.

“He’s training well, he’s a great professional, Kels, and he knows he’s going to feature over the course of this period at some point.”
