Iheanacho: Why I Enjoy Playing With Vardy

Kelechi Iheanacho has given reasons why he enjoys playing alongside Jamie Vardy in a two-man attack at Leicester City, the Independent reports.

Iheanacho has played second fiddle to Vardy for the majority of his time at Leicester but the pair are currently playing together due to a plethora of injury problems.

The Nigeria international was on target again after equalising in Saturday’s 2-1 victory at Brighton to claim his seventh strike of the campaign in all competitions, including four in his last seven outings.

With Vardy enduring a prolonged barren run in front of goal, Iheanacho now has as many goals from open play this season as his high-profile team-mate.

And speaking after scoring at the weekend, Iheanacho said:”I like playing with him (Vardy) because he can run in behind and gives me options, or he can get the ball and go deep. I like playing with him but when he’s not around I can play by myself.

“I’m happy with the goals that are coming now. I feel good.”
