Leicester City Assistant coach, Chris Davies says he’s pleased to see Super Eagles forward Kelechi Iheanacho getting back to full confidence again, after netting on three occasions in the Foxes pre season campaign.
Davies added that the FIFA U-17 world cup winner can still improve, but must work hard if he’s to be one of the best strikers in the Premier League.
The Nigeria international who was left out of Nigeria‘s 2019 African Cup of scored twice in Leicester’s 2-2 draw against former Semi Ajayi‘s side Rotherham United in a pre-season game on Saturday .
“(I’m) Very pleased,” said Davies after watching Iheanacho score a brace at the New York Stadium.
“Kel (Iheanacho) is a threat. He’s got a lot of attribute, (he’s) quick, strong, has a good technique, he’s a finisher, and it’s difficult.
“He’s playing second fiddle really to one of the Premier League’s best striker’s in Vards, so he has to be patient, he has to do his best to develop himself through training.
“He’s been doing that. He’s come back hungry and strong, he scored a hat-trick in a pre-season training game the other day and now he’s done that today.
“He scored two, he could have had more and to be fair the goals he did score, he took them very well. There are a couple more he could have scored but we need goals and it’s really promising.” He said.
Iheanacho will hope to carry his pre season form into the premier league proper later this month.
