Nigeria international Wilfred Ndidi has praised rejuvenated striker Kelechi Iheanacho, who has rediscovered his scoring form.

Striker Iheanacho has scored six goals and registered four assists for English Premier League side Leicester City since the start of December 2019.

His Leicester teammate Ndidi, who is a midfielder by trade, spoke about Iheanacho’s form on Leicestershire Live.

“I’m very happy for Kelelchi because he’s a natural goalscorer. If you give him the opportunity like he has now, he will deliver,” Ndidi said.

The defensive midfielder feels that Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers has helped Iheanacho rediscover his scoring form.

“I think the manager has really helped him too. He’s done that with so many players,” he added.

“We have good discipline and understand the game better. Every player has really changed, in a good way.”

Iheanacho has hit the back of the net three times in nine Premier League games this season.

He will be looking to add to his tally when Leicester take on Wolverhampton Wanderers on Friday, February 14.
