Iheanacho Stopped At Polish Border, Out Of Leicester’s Europa League Game

Iheanacho Stopped At Polish Border, Out Of Leicester’s Europa League Game 

Kelechi Iheanacho will be forced to miss Leicester City’s Europa League clash against Legia Warsaw on Thursday after being stopped at the Polish border.

Iheanacho has been denied entry to the country after Polish authorities noticed a discrepancy in the details on his paperwork when compared alongside his passport.


Iheanacho was detained at Warsaw’s Chopin Airport as a result and will now play no part in Thursday’s fixture.

Manager Brendan Rodgers confirmed the news, telling reporters: “We’ve had an issue with Kelechi so his documentation coming into the country wouldn’t suffice.

“Unfortunately he’s not available to play which is a shame because he would have played in the game.

“The paperwork didn’t allow him to enter the country, which is unfortunate. We’ll have to look at that when we get back.”

Iheanacho is now set to return to the UK after club officials discussed with the Polish authorities the best way to secure his safe passage back.

The wrangle over his documentation is in no way related to Covid.

Rodgers will now have to do without the 24-year-old and it will come as a blow to Iheanacho too, given his only starts so far this season have been in the cup competitions.

Iheanacho’s compatriot Wilfried Ndidi is also absent for Leicester due to suspension, after he was sent off against Napoli.

Also, defender Jonny Evans will miss the tie after being struck down by illness.
Leicester drew 2-2 in their first match of this season’s competition with Napoli while Legia Warsaw currently top Group C after an opening win over Spartak Moscow.

    Reckon this lad is British,having lived in the UK for over six years should guarantee citizenship.

    • @Greenturf, nothing to do with his passport. His Uefa paperwork probably had a typo or an error. His passport hasn’t stopped him traveling before now

      @Naija Land, you are a compound idiot for relating Iheanacho’s documentation issues to him being an IBO man, You have indeed proven that you are a a son of harlot born from multiple sperm accummulations and no identifiable father. That’s why you lack home training.
