Former Chelsea fans favourite Celestine Babayaro says Leicester City Nigerian forward Kelechi Iheanacho will struggle to score goals at the club unlike when he was at Manchester City.
Iheanacho joined Leicester City from Man City in the summer with the reputation of one of the most clinical strikers in the English top division the past two seasons.
However since moving to Leicester City he has struggled to hit same height and Babayaro said the Leicester City style of play is to be blamed for his struggles at the club.
” It’s a different system for Iheanacho. A system which he isn’t use to, far different from the Man City style of play where the ball to feet even in the box allows strikers to be very clinical in front of goal”, Babayaro told Owngoalnigeria.com.
” Leicester City play the typical way English teams like to play, and the strikers in such formation are required to do lot of running just like Jamie Vardy.. Even the Algerian guy Islam Slimani is struggling to cope.
” Iheanacho will come good but it could take a while due to the Leicester City style of play. He doesn’t run much, he loves the ball to run on his behalf and that is not the Leicester way of playing”, he remarked.
