Leicester City Manager, Claude Puel has opened up on what he wants from Nigeria tennage striker, Kelechi Iheanacho.

The Nigerian was in superb form for his club in the Carabao Cup against his former club, Manchester City. Leicester lost the game 4-3 on penalty shoot out.

The Foxes boss praised the youngster but urged him to “work to improve.”

“[Iheanacho] tried, he shoot on target. He had a good opportunity in the first half. He gave his best,” Puel told Leicester Mercury.

“He’s a young player, he needs to continue to work to improve.

“It was important to see him, to give him game-time. It was a good opportunity for him and other players.

“I was happy with the squad because it was a good level of quality on the pitch and it was a good response after our game against Crystal Palace.

“I have a good feeling with the squad.

“Kele, like others players, like Slimani, like Musa, they are different players. It’s important for them and for the squad.

“We have a lot of players sometimes in the same position and it’s difficult to manage this. It’s important to keep the positive attitude, for Kele it’s the same thing.”

Leicester will host Manchester United at King Power Stadium on Saturday and Iheanacho will hope to play.
