Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers has been urged to keep Nigeria forward Kelechi Iheanacho despite the forward’s poor form, reports Completesports.com.
Iheanacho, who is currently on a six months goal drought, has made 33 appearances so far this term scoring two goals and providing three assists.
The former Manchester City forward was also left out of Nigeria’s national team squad that defeated Seychelles in an Africa Nations Cup qualifier and in an international friendly match against Egypt last month.
According to a report on Leicester City Mercury, Brendan Rodgers should keep the 22-year old whose talent is yet to be fully utilized.
“He (Iheanacho) may be on a six-month goal drought but there is no indication that City has given up on Iheanacho, with Rodgers tasking himself with turning around the Nigerian’s fortunes. There is talent there, City just needs to draw it out,” the report reads.
The report also backed Wilfred Ndidi to stay at Leicester City for next season.
“Ndidi penned a new six-year deal last summer and has started all but one Leicester City league game this year, the Nigerian still an integral part of the City squad. Plus, he has been rejuvenated since Youri Tielemans arrived. He’s going nowhere.”
