I Was Written Off But Never Gave Up Iheanacho Shares Touching Story

In-form Nigerian striker and Leicester City forward, Kelechi Iheanacho has shared the touching story of his footballing career.

Nigerian international, Kelechi Iheanacho has shared the touching story of his footballing career.

The Leicester City striker said that even though he was written off, he never gave up on himself which has seen him bang in goals to the shock of many.

 

Iheanacho had his worst ever scoring run of his professional career in 2019, failing to score in over 365 days, with trio Jamie Vardy, Ayoze Perez and James Maddison all ahead of him in the pecking order.

 

The 24-year-old’s lack of goals at Leicester during this period also saw him lose his place in the Super Eagles, and was left out of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations.

 

However, the former Manchester City striker has returned to form for The Foxes and was named March’s Premier League Player of The Month and is on course for a double award for April.

 

Speaking with BBC Sport on his resurgence, Iheanacho said, “I think a lot of people wrote me off, but I never lost faith in myself.

 

“I was going through a crazy and difficult time when things just didn’t work out for me.

 

“But I’ve worked extremely hard, and also have the manager and other staff at Leicester, and most importantly my brother and friend Wilfred (Ndidi) who stood by me.

 

“It’s been a really tough ride but I’m just delighted it’s all come together for me.

 

He continued, “It was truly a bad patch and we all know that some people are always too quick to judge. To hear some people come out now and start saying positive things again is only normal but I don’t even bother.

 

“I only have to prove to myself that I can do this consistently, continue to grow, help my club and country when I get the chance to play.

 

“We have a lot ahead of us. It’s that time of the season where you want to fight for everything in front of you and not get carried away.”

 

Iheanacho is the Foxes’ top scorer this season with 18 goals from 35 matches across all competitions.
