    That number 20 Hamza is a mate.He’s from a Caribbean origin and lives in the Merseyside.Fast and very explosive defensive midfielder with a quick feet.Ndidi is the reason he has had just only a handful of games.

      I wonder who the group of persons advising Iheanacho are…How can a bright young player just be comfortable sitting on the bench or even sometimes left out of the matchday squad totally week in,week out…May God open his eyes early enough before it is too late

  • Run away from Leicester to save your carea.

  • Keke will soon leave Leicester….
    I’m thinking he’s just patient so as to acquire the E.U / British passport b4 anything else.
    Still got the Stars Gene in him though.
