Kelechi Iheanacho has drawn special praises from Leicester City Manager, Brendan Rodgers following his impressive performances for the club lately.
The Super Eagles Striker scored a hat-trick for Leicester City in the 5-1 spanking of Sheffield United in their last Premier League match.
“I thought it was a fantastic interview. The humility he had to score a hat-trick and thank everyone else. It was authentic. He respects his life as a footballer,” Rodgers said in a press conference.
“He appreciates the support he gets from everyone. He’s been very productive for us. As a person, he’s a great guy and plays with a smile on his face.
“He rarely misses a day of training. When he’s asked upon, he produces in the main. There have been some performances where he hasn’t been at his most confident.”
Iheanacho has scored 10 goals and recorded four assists for Leicester City in 27 appearances in all competitions.
He is expected to play a key role in the Super Eagles Afcon qualifiers against Benin Republic Lesotho later this month.
Iheanacho will hope to continue his scoring run as Leicester City battle Manchester United for a place in the FA Cup last four on Sunday.
