Leicester City attacker, Kelechi Iheanacho has come out with secrets behind his majestic goal and top-grade performance against Huddersfield Town at the weekend, as he says it was all about team work and determination.
Iheanacho made hay by netting a crucial equaliser for The Foxes and then got an assist on their winning goal but, rather than take personal glory for the turnaround, the former Manchester City star says all his teammates worked hard for the 3-1 victory.
Footballlive.ng can report that Iheanacho disclosed in the aftermath of Saturday’s victory that Leicester deserved maximum points at King Power Stadium, because all his colleagues kept their heads up and they combined well to eke out a dramatic comeback.
Iheanacho, though, also acknowledged that he was able to enact a cordial understanding with his strike partner, Jamie Vardy, which he believes would get better as the season grows as well as help the club get better results.
Iheanacho also hinted that he would love to be Vardy’s strike partner because they have struck up a perfect understanding.
After scoring the equaliser with his left foot from Vardy’s pass, Iheanacho returned the favour and set up his strike partner with an assist of his own in the second half, all of which he said is the mark of understanding among all the players.
Of the 27 matches Iheanacho has played for the Foxes in the English topflight since his arrival at the club from Manchester City, only eight times he has started a game with the England international.
‘Kelele’ first supported Vardy in attack against Huddersfield just over a year ago, before doing same in matches against West Bromwich Albion, Swansea City, Southampton, Crystal Palace, Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur last season.
Dramatically, all Iheanacho’s four goals for Leicester in the Premier League were scored with Vardy on the pitch, such that he is already talking of extending the combination to their next away to Wolverhampton Wanderers in the third round of the Carabao Cup on Tuesday.
Iheanacho said: ”I think the whole team did brilliantly. I think we worked hard. It was a sloppy goal in the first half but we kept our heads down and got the equalizer and the goals came.
”I think we had a good partnership. Me and Jamie are fast on the break with good midfielders in Maddison and Demarai Gray.
”I think it is a good thing for us to finish well today. I think we’ll keep going like that and see how we go.”
