After seeing a 17-minute cameo of new Leicester City signing, Kelechi Iheanacho and the link-up play between the former Manchester City forward and Jamie Vardy, Coach Craig Shakespeare is already dreaming of a great partnership between the pair.
AOIFootball.com gathered that the former Manchester City forward, who joined the Foxes last week and featured in their last pre-season friendly against Borrussia Monchengladbach, is a probable starter on Friday against Arsenal in the first game of the season for the former champions.
Shakespeare already envisages a bright future for Iheanacho and Vardy when he said:
“They can play together, most definitely.”
“You’ve seen how they linked up, and good players can. I think having the depth in the squad is important.
“I thought he was really unselfish for a player making his debut. You would probably think he might take that chance himself, but to spot Jamie, to play that in with the weight of pass he did for Jamie to finish it, it shows his awareness and his unselfishness.”
Kelechi may however start from the bench for the Foxes against the Gunners at the Emirates.
