Kelechi Iheanacho

Nigeria international, Kelechi Iheanacho, is optimistic Leicester City would achieve their Premier League target next season which is scheduled to kick off next month. 

Iheanacho was in superb form last season where he netted 19 goals for the Brendan Rodgers-led team.

“Obviously, I scored goals last season,” Iheanacho told the club’s official portal on Monday.

“I think, this season, we really need to do more and focus on our games. I have a good feeling that this season, it might fall for us and we will get what we want. As I said before, we need to concentrate and focus on the games, one after the other and hopefully, we will get there in the end.

“I pray for more goals, but most importantly, more wins and more points.”

The 2013 FIFA U17 World Cup winner also expressed delight at his return to the fold of the Foxes.

“It feels good, it is sunny! I am happy to be back. Pre-season is on, so you know what it means: running, running, running!” Iheanacho said.

“Of course, it’s good to be back. Now, we need to concentrate on the work that we have ahead. We just need to focus and get through the pre-season and focus on the new season.

“It is good to be back with this special group of lads. We are like a family. We are all friends, so it is always good to be back with everybody. We are hoping we will be back fit and strong so we can work together again.

“I am happy, coming back here, and hopefully we will enjoy it and even enjoy the running as well!”
