Former Super Eagles coach Samson Siasia has once again come into the defense of Super Eagles forward Kelechi Iheanacho after spurning a glorious chance against his former City side on Monday Night.
Iheanacho could have come back to haunt his former side but instead, City goes into the final round of fixtures ahead of Liverpool in the title race after winning 1-0 at the Etihad thanks to Vincent Kompany’s sensational strike.
However, Siasia said Iheanacho is a good player, and he won’t have been in Manchester city and Leceister city if he is not a good footballer.
“I think the coaches don’t know how to use him, Iheanacho is a special kind of a player that they need to know the right position to play him if you don’t use him well he will never shine that’s why he’s having problem with the super eagles too.
“They don’t know how to play him, but is one of the best goal finishers we have in the country today, but the problem here is how do you play him is the issues the coaches are having with him”.
Iheanacho’s miss allowed Pep Guardiola’s men to hold on to their crucial advantage and they will be confident of securing the Premier League title on Sunday.
