Chelsea: Legend Attacks Nigerian Forward

Published

on

Former Chelsea defender Robert Huth has questioned the ability of Nigerian attacker Kelechi Iheanacho.

Robert Huth talked about Super Eagles player Iheanacho while he was on BBC Radio 5 Live.

According to him, Kelechi Iheanacho does not have the quality to replace Jamie Vardy as the lone striker for Leicester City.

Kelechi Iheanacho is in his third season at Leicester City following his big money move from Premier League champions Manchester City.

Leicester City paid around £25m to sign Iheanacho from Leicester City.

Since his transfer, Kelechi Iheanacho has not been able to nail down a starting spot in the Leicester City team.

He has not been able to displace England international Jamie Vardy as the lone striker in the starting XI at the King Power Stadium.

Kelechi Iheanacho has hardly featured for Leicester City since Brendan Rodgers was appointed as the replacement for French tactician Claude Puel at the club.

His plight at Leicester City was further compounded this summer with the signing of Spanish attacker Ayoze Perez for £30m.

Ayoze Perez joined the Foxes from fellow Premier League outfit Newcastle United.

Iheanacho paid dearly for his lack of playing time at Leicester City after he missed out on the Super Eagles squad that finished theirs at this summer’s African Cup of Nations (AFCON) tournament in Egypt.
