Despite the fact that the Foxes suffered their 13th defeat of the season in North London, the Northern Irishman was impressed with the 25-year-old performance.

After losing 3-1 to Tottenham Hotspur in a Premier League match on Sunday, Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers praised Kelechi Iheanacho’s performance. The Foxes came into the game looking to get back on track after drawing 0-0 with Aston Villa the previous week, but it was Spurs who took the lead thanks to Harry Kane before Son Heung-min scored twice in the second half.

The Foxes got a late consolation goal from the 25-year-old Nigeria international, who beat Hugo Lloris with a long-range effort.

According to the club’s official website, Rodgers said after the game, “It was a very good strike and a very good goal.” “He created a problem for them. He dropped one or two balls, which he could have done better with, but he kept fighting and running. It was an excellent goal. “

Meanwhile, as quoted by the same portal, Iheanacho discussed his fourth goal of the season: “I had a shot in the first half and, in the second half, I took the ball quite well, shifted it, saw the space, and put it there.”

We lost on Sunday, but we won’t linger on it because the goal came late. We need to go back as soon as possible since we have a big game on Thursday. We have a strong team that can turn things around. We’re hoping it will work out nicely for us. They have a good team, but we want to make it to the final. “

Our supporters are always there for us, in good times and bad. They are always willing to help. We’ll keep going and giving it our all in the hopes of getting something for them on Thursday. “

Iheanacho also confessed that they were disappointed after their 13th defeat of the season, which came against Spurs. “We’re quite dissatisfied with the game,” Iheanacho added. “We lost, but we performed well in both halves,” says the coach. The goals, on the other hand, altered the trajectory.

We’ll never dwell since we’re always together, whether we win or lose. We’ll move forward, and hopefully, we’ll be able to settle it out and concentrate on the upcoming games. “

We were able to get into good positions and move the ball effectively. The game was turned around by those goals. That is the flaw we must address. We’re not going to talk about it any further. The next game requires us to concentrate and focus. Leicester will now turn their attention to the Europa League, where they will face AS Roma in the second leg of their semi-final at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome. The first meeting between the two teams ended in a 1-1 draw at King Power Stadium.
