McCoist who was a pundit on Talksport said that Leicester City striker Iheanacho has more finishing instincts than the former RB Leipzig star.

He said:

“I can see Werner thinking about that chance, where a natural finisher doesn’t.
“If that’s Iheanacho, he doesn’t miss. I can see a slight sense of hesitation.”

Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that Kelechi Iheanacho is currently one of the most in-form players in the Premier League as he helped Leicester City defeat Crystal Palace to cement their status in the Champions League spot.

Kelechi's club and international teammate Wilfred Ndidi has become his hype man both in and outside of the pitch, and this time the midfielder came with another soap-cutting request.

It all started when the former Man City striker scored the all-important winner against Southampton in the FA cup semi-finals as the Foxes made it through to the final after many years.
