Rohr Wants Iheanacho To Do Better At Leicester City

Gernot Rohr has said Kelechi Iheanacho needs more playing time at Leicester City. Iheanacho has endured a frustrating spell at the King power stadium ever since he moved from Manchester City.

The young Nigerian forward has scored six goals from eight starts, making 13 substitute appearances. Rohr has said he is impressed with the forward’s contributions against West Brom at the weekend. However, he hopes Claude Puel will place more faith in the 21-year-old.
