Leicester: Iheanacho’s injury won’t be long

LEICESTER City boss, Craig Shakespare on Saturday said he is confident Kelechi Iheanacho’s injury after Kelechi Iheanacho suffered 17 minutes on his debut won’t be long.

The £25million signing from Manchester City made his bow as Leicester defeated German side Borussia Monchengladbach 2-1.

Iheanacho came on the 66th minute and set up Jamie Vardy for the winner but was then replaced by Leonardo Ulloa after an awkward challenge.

Foxes boss Craig Shakespeare said: “I am still looking to find out. I don’t know whether it is ankle or Achilles.

“He was up on his feet, and the first thing is for me is the physios are not showing a great concern, which is a good sign. But you can see the impact he’s had. We’re really just making sure that was more of a precaution.

“We’ve had a look at him in training. He hasn’t trained very often so far – he hasn’t been able to because of circumstances.”
