Kelechi Iheanacho has been advised to remain humble if the Leicester City striker wants to remain at the top of his game.
Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr gave the advise on Sunday.
“From my perspective Kelechi Iheanacho can keep his good form for Leicester City as well as winning the EPL player of the month if he remains humble,” the German tactician told NationSport.
“I think this is an important quality to have all the time as a great player.”
“We played him twice (during the AFCON qualifiers), although he didn’t score, he made a wonder assist to Osimhen in the second game (Lesotho) for the first goal.”
The forward has been in terrific form for the Foxes this season, scoring 12 goals and providing five assists in 28 appearances across all competitions and recently signed a new contract that will keep him at King Power Stadium until 2024.
The 24-year-old scored five goals in three league appearances for the Foxes in the lead-up to the international break last month, including his first Premier League hat-trick against Sheffield United, resulting in the former Manchester City star being named March’s Premier League player of the month on Friday.
He was one of eight players shortlisted for the award and beat the likes of Tottenham Hotspur’s Harry Kane, Manchester City’s Riyad Mahrez and Manchester United’s Luke Shaw to the accolade.
