Manager of English Premier League side Leicester City Claude Puel has revealed that Nigerian duo Kelechi Iheanacho and Ahmed Musa are indeed part of his plans this season.
Iheanacho has been in and out of the Leicester City team since his move in the summer from Manchester City, while Musa has been restricted to games with the U23 since the start of the season.
However Puel has assured the duo alongside other fringe players in his squad that they are part of his plans, and he particularly mentioned Iheanacho when he made this known during the pre match conference ahead of their game against West Ham tomorrow.
“He (Iheanacho) is a good player but he must improve when he finds his place in the squad. We have a lot of players in this position. It is good competition between them, perhaps a little more because for one or two positions we have six possibilities.
“We have Iheanacho, Islam Slimani, Ahmed Musa, Shinji Okazaki, Leo Ulloa and Jamie Vardy; it is a lot of players but I hope we can give them good game time for the future because we play every three days.
“It will need all these players with good qualities and attitude.
“They need to work hard in the training sessions to keep a good level. Of course all the players want game time but the balance is difficult because we have a lot of players in the same position”, Puel said.
