Iheanacho: I Never Lost Faith In Myself


Leicester City forward Kelechi Iheanacho insists he always believe in his ability to turn things around during his difficult spell at the club.

Iheanacho has played second fiddle to Jamie Vardy since linking up with the Foxes and the arrival of Ayoze Perez further pushed him down the pecking order.

The 24-year-old was also dropped from Nigeria’s squad to the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt after failing to feature regularly for the former Premier League champions.

The striker fortunes has however changed in recent months as he has scored 10 Premier League goals since the start of March.

Iheanacho was named Premier League player of the Month for March and is on course for a double award for the month of April.

“I think a lot of people wrote me off, but I never lost faith in myself,” Iheanacho told BBC Sport Africa.

“I was going through a crazy and difficult time when things just didn’t work out for me.
