Iheanacho Reveals His Foxes Inspiration

Kelechi Iheanacho says he’s learning plenty from fellow forward Jamie Vardy at Leicester as he continues to develop. Iheanacho has been a key part of Claude Puel’s side so far this season, making eight Premier League starts, and he is again set to be in the XI up front against Tottenham on Saturday, with Vardy out injured.

The former Manchester City man has revealed he looks up to Vardy and remembers when he broke the league record when scoring in 11 consecutive games in the Foxes’ brilliant title-winning season in 2015.

He said: “I have been watching him and when I was at Manchester City I was really following him and when he broke the record against [Manchester] United, it was the motivation for me as well. “So seeing him scoring 11 games straight, it gives every youngster motivation to know anything is possible in football.”

Iheanacho added in the Leicester Mercury: “I have been watching him since. I didn’t know I am going to come here so playing alongside him is a joy and I am happy learning from him and keep improving.”
