Nigeria international Kelechi Iheanacho has discussed the pride he feels to be a part of a ‘great’ Leicester City squad.
Iheanacho has scored and assisted twice over his last two English Premier League (EPL) outings for the Foxes, which included a last-minute winner against Everton a week ago.
The 23-year-old striker scored City’s second goal as they beat Aston Villa 4-1 on Sunday, after Jamie Vardy’s first of two strikes, while defender Jonny Evans also registered his first strike of the season.
“It was a great performance from the whole team. We’ve been great this season, we just need to keep going, keep our heads down. This one is done now and we’re looking forward to the next game,” Iheanacho told the club’s official website.
“They were a good side today, they were brilliant, but I think we were all over them. We stuck to our plan and got spaces all over the place and we got the goals so it’s brilliant!”
Iheanacho’s recent performances for the Foxes have been a major source of satisfaction for the Blue Army and the man himself admits he has been thrilled with his displays.
“On a personal level, I’m excited, scoring again and assisting Jamie, so I just need to keep going and keep the level up, working hard in training to make sure I keep my head up,” he added.
“It’s very good to be a part of this great squad so I’m happy to be part of it and going forward we have fantastic players, great quality and talented players, so I’m happy to be part of it.
“Everyone is buzzing, everyone is happy. It’s a fantastic record and [we have] a great manager, great staff [and a] good group of players. I’m happy to be part of it. I feel we can win the next game and we’ll keep going and get more records.”
