Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers has nothing but kinds words for Iheanacho after the forward steered the Foxes into the last-four of the Emirates FA Cup, reports Completesports.com.
The Nigeria international scored twice and bagged an assist as Rodgers’ men recorded a 3-1 win against Manchester United at the Old Trafford on Sunday night .
Iheanacho has now scored seven goals in his last four appearances for the Foxes.
“Kelechi has always contributed. Maybe his confidence was lower but he works so hard every day and always comes in and gives his all. You see his confidence now. He’s at the top of his game,”Rodgers told BBC after the match.
“It’s a different structure [up front]. Kelechi is probably best with someone up there with him. Those two are working very well.
“Our solidity and intensity of press was very good. When we dropped into our shape we denied them space. To beat Manchester United 3-1 you have to be complete in all aspects of the game and the players did that.
“[The semi-final] is a way off yet. I told the players they were three games from history. Now it’s two. We’re making the right steps, we’re on the right path. We’re very ambitious to be the best we can be. That’s the challenge and it’s the test we’re enjoying.”Fastest Paying Betting Site in Nigeria: Grab your 140% First Time Deposit Bonus Now — www.Sportybet.Com Copyright © 2021 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
