The former Foxes forward has an insight into why the Nigerian star performed well in front of Brendan Rodgers players last season
Tony Cottee explained the reasons behind Kelechi Iheanacho’s outstanding scoring performance for Leicester City in the 2020-21 season.

“This is where I admire Brendan-he can determine when a change is needed, and he has enough courage to do it.
“I have been doing this myself throughout my entire career. The managers told me that they knew I could score goals. Martin O’Neal told me in Leicester City, but it was also to bring the other side in. Your game.
“You have to work hard for the team. Being a center is not always easy, because I think, in essence, if you are a shooter, you are almost in a’selfish mode’ because your focus and goals are Goal.
