Tim Sherwood says he feels sorry for Kelechi Iheanacho

Former Tottenham manager, Tim Sherwood, has said he feels sorry for Leicester City forward, Kelechi Iheanacho.

According to him, the Nigerian is now undroppable for Foxes manager Brendan Rodgers.

Sherwood, however, says he feels sorry for Iheanacho, because when the striker joined Leicester from Manchester City he thought he would play every minute at the King Power.

He noted that though the dream of playing every game did not happen when the player expected it, Iheanacho is now an important member of the Leicester City squad.

According to him, Brendan Rodgers can no longer afford to drop the Super Eagles star from the starting lineup.

“It has been forced upon him (Brendan Rodgers) a little bit, there was no Maddison, there was no Ayoze Perez,” Sherwood said on Premier League Productions’ The Weekend Preview on Friday afternoon.

“He played him (Iheanacho) when Vardy was injured but he stuck with the two because you cannot drop him at the moment.

“He is undroppable, fantastic goals that he scores. I feel sorry for him, he has come from Manchester City, he probably thought he was going to play every minute of every game, didn’t materialize like that.

“Now he has kept himself right, he’s very professional, he’s had the opportunity and he’s showing everyone what he can do.”
