Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers has praised Kelechi Iheanacho once again for his exemplary attitude following the Nigerian forward’s impressive showing in recent games for the Foxes, reports Completesports.com.
Iheanacho had endured a torrid spell at the start of the campaign to become a key part of Rodgers’ squad.
The 23-year-old has scored three goals in eight league games so far this season.
The former Manchester City player is expected to play a key role in the coming weeks after Jamie Vardy picked up an injury in Wednesday’s 4-1 home win against West Ham United.
Leicester City travel to Griffin Park on Saturday for the Emirates FA Cup tie against Sky Bet Championship promotion hopefuls Brentford.
Vardy will miss the game, as well as next Tuesday’s Carabao Cup semi-final second leg clash at Aston Villa.
And Iheanacho who is now expected to lead the lines for Leicester City in the absence of the 33-year-old has received huge plaudits from his manager.
“He’s (Iheanacho) been brilliant. You can see him improving all the time. He’s working very hard in training and taking that into games. His attitude is absolutely first class,” Rodgers told a news conference on Friday.
