Can Kelechi Iheanacho Sustain His Recent Blistering Form?

Nigeria forward Kelechi Iheanacho has penned a new contract with Premier League club, Leicester City after recent barnstorming performances across all competitions. The new deal will see Super Eagles Sharp Shooter remain at the King Power Stadium until at least 2024. Iheanacho, 24, is enjoying the best form of his Leicester City career, having decemated defences to score seven times in his last four appearances for the Foxes and putting other competitors to the shade by picking up the Premier League’s Player of the Month award for March.

This shows how far Nigerian players can go when focus, concentration, hard work and dedication are applied in the dispensation of their football duties. Having stoically sown the seeds of pristine work ethics in recent weeks, Kelechi Iheanacho is now reaping the harvest of goals, plaudits and personal accolades. If he is wise, all the attention coming his way should be a wake up call of how far he could yet go and what is in store for him if he rejects the ampoules of lackadaisical attitude. I will not use this medium to praise Iheanacho, rather urge him to continue to work harder. He can attract the interest of clubs far bigger than Leicester City. Rather than replacing Vardy, there is nothing wrong in Iheanacho replacing Lewandoski, Cristiano Ronaldo or Karim Benzema. The future is not set, it is what he makes of it.
