Iheanacho: I’m Getting Back To My Best, Hopeful For New Season

Kelechi Iheanacho believes he is regaining his confidence with his resurgent scoring form for Leicester City following a difficult spell at the club last season, reports Completesports.com.

Iheanacho endured a tough campaign with the Foxes struggling to make an impression first under Claude Puel and later under Brendan Rodgers.

The 22-year-old was also dropped from Nigeria’s squad to the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt due to his poor club form.

He scored his first Leicester City goal since September in last Tuesday’s 3-0 friendly win against Scunthorpe and followed that with a sublime brace in the 2-2 draw against Rotherham United on Saturday.


Iheanacho celebrates one of his two goals for Leicester against Rotherham in a pre-season friendly match that ended 2-2

“I am delighted, I am happy getting two goals today,” Iheanacho said after the game against Rotherham United.

“Hopefully I can take that into the season.

“I think it’s important for my confidence. It has been a long time coming, but I am happy again. I think I can take it fully into the season.

“We have a big squad, so many players who are good footballers. Everyone is competing and fighting for a place.”

    Thank goodness!we need you to regain your sharpness your killer instincts.We need you to be at your best.
    The super eagles no 9 is vacant as we speak and is there for the taken.
    I knew Ighalo’s retirement is a good omen what it has done was to spring up new set of strikers and the former underperforming ones getting back to form so in my opinion is a win win situation for Nigeria.
    We shouldn’t beg any player that has lost the desire to play for a huge country like Nigeria with a plethora of talents.
    I challenge you Isaacs Success to rise to the occasion and challenge Iheanacho and others for that golden no.9 shirt!yes you can!
