Kelechi Iheanacho has been outstanding for Leicester City, scoring eight goals in all competitions
The Super Eagles star missed Leicester’s 2-2 draw with Everton owing to an injury he sustained in the Foxes’ away game against Leeds United.
Following this, the Nigerian will be back in action in less than two weeks, according to the British manager, who provided a positive update on Iheanacho’s progress.
IIheanacho, who currently ranks third on the team in goals scored with eight, one behind James Maddison (9) and two behind Harvey Barnes (10), has been instrumental in the East Midlands’ knack to survive this season’s relegation.
His absence would be felt again this weekend, but the former Norwich City manager has revealed that the Nigerian is responding to treatment and will be available for their last two games.
“Kel has responded to treatment. Obviously he won’t be back this weekend, but we may get him back for the last two games. We weren’t hopeful of that when he first sustained the injury. Everyone else has come through the game okay.” He stated during a press conference prior to their visit to Craven Cottage.
Leicester still has four games to play and is currently 16th in the English Premier League standings. After drawing with Everton, Leicester would face a bigger challenge against Fulham.
Meanwhile, Iheanacho is still doubtful for their crucial game against Liverpool, but he is predicted to return to action against Newcastle.
