    Iheanacho is a class act, but highly underated. Give Iheanacho playing time and he will get the job done.

  • Form 1 year ago

    Form is temporary but class is permanent. Iheanacho is a quality forward any time any day but Rogers will always prefer to keep him on the bench in favour of English players unrilll Wahala reach I’m head

    Iheanacho needs to leave liecester for good

    Senior Man, keep proving your haters wrong. We know them all on this platform. God bless your hustle, Kelly Man

  • Every season Brenden Rogers only uses iheanacho when they are in trouble and desperately need someone special to dig them out…,..And iheanacho has always delivered for them……This says alot about iheanacho’s quality……I think he deserves a better treatment from leceister after all what he has done for them…… Iheanacho needs to sit down with them and have a chat before signing again.

    To think that some idiots here usually insult this guy if he has a bad game or is on the bench.

  • Brendan Rodgers is a racist cos i don’t see the point of benching a young and better player to an older player who has already passed his prime. Iheanacho should seriously consider leaving Leicester

    All the people insulting Iheanacho on previous threads when I reach house I go dig una name come out. They said players like Iheanacho should not be invited to national team. If it happens that these same people are on this thread praising him then it’s time for roasting your asses….

    • Papafem 1 year ago

      I know them, @Chima. Monkey Post is their Prime Minister. He once called him a Bench Warmer and other unprintable names just because Rodgers was not using him. No matter what happens to them in their career, we have no right to insult them. These are national heroes, better than politicians that we worship here and there who have added no value to our lives. The other day, one stupid riff raff called Awoniyi a flop. That was Awoniyi that was on fire before the injury. The same Awoniyi that ensured we won 2013 u17 WWC in UAE. The same Awoniyi that helped Nigeria qualify for Rio 2016 Olympics. Some people are just mean and terribly censorious. What they gain by doing so only God knows

    Well, l will always say it as it is. my name could be in your book. So be it. I am not the one that benched Iheanacho for so long or use him only during Cabana matches, year in year out. It is his club manager. His manager does not believe in Iheanacho and that is why he uses him as a last resort. It tells why the Nigeria coach did not recall Iheanacho regularly from time to time also. Blame Brendan Rodger’s for Iheanacho’s fluctuating misfortunes.

    • Iheanacho is in his mid twenties and playing in a Top5 league in Europe which means calling for him to be dropped because he is not having a great season is not wise…… Considering we have a shortage of players who are playing top level football at the moment……We must raise the standard of our national team…….We can not be promoting mushroom league players and be judging our top level players harshly then expect success.

    If a player performs well, he gets praised. If he performs poorly, he will be criticized. It’s nothing personal.
    Good to see Nacho showing good form once again. Our players should make the job of selection extremely difficult for Peseiro by producing high quality performances.
    BTW, watched Olise today against Man United. Hmmm. We already know he’s a quality player. But today, he actually had me drooling. No point deceiving ourselves. While I agree that nobody should be begged to play for SE, perhaps he can be PERSUADED?
    Just imagine Iwobi and Olise in the midfield for Naija. If there is something good out there, there is nothing wrong in trying your best to acquire it. And you have to be persistent. If it doesn’t work, fine. At least we tried our best. But if he agrees, our midfield receives a huge boost for the next decade.

    Una just like to dey make noise, its high time una carry your online coaching certificates and go apply for Leicester city and kick Bredan out since una know more than the coach that sees him week in week put. Make una go play am the way una want. Can he translate his performance today against bigger teams. One week he plays go, the next he is no where to be found.
