Leicester City Manager, Brendan Rodgers has showered encomiums on Super Eagles Striker, Kelechi Iheanacho.

Iheanacho has been in a rich vein of form for the club lately scoring a hat-trick in his last match against Sheffield United in the Premier League.

“I thought it was a fantastic interview. The humility he had to score a hat-trick and thank everyone else. It was authentic. He respects his life as a footballer,” Rodgers said in a press conference.

“He appreciates the support he gets from everyone. He’s been very productive for us. As a person, he’s a great guy and plays with a smile on his face.

“He rarely misses a day of training. When he’s asked upon, he produces in the main. There have been some performances where he hasn’t been at his most confident."

The Former Manchester City star has scored 10 goals and recorded four assists for Leicester City in 27 appearances in all competitions.

He is expected to play a key role in the Super Eagles Afcon qualifiers Benin Republic Lesotho later this month.
