Leicester City boss, Claude Puel, have urged its Nigerian striker, Kelechi Iheanacho, to put in more works to his skills on the pitch.

This follows his impressive performance in the League Cup against Manchester City on Tuesday.

The Nigeria international teamed with the Foxes in the summer for a fee of £25 million but has failed to impress.

He has been restricted to just 11 games for the first team, scoring once.

Puel, however, believes the player can do more than his admirable show of skills at the club’s 4-3 penalty shootout loss.

Puel said,  “[Iheanacho] tried, he shot 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.”
