Coach Craig Shakespeare has allayed injury fears over Kelechi Iheanacho after the Leicester City’s new signing limped off just 17 minutes into his debut.
The Nigeria internatonal, who completed a £25million move from Manchester City on Thursday, hobbled off late on in the pre-season victory over Borussia Mönchengladbach.
Iheanacho had just set up Jamie Vardy for the second of his two goals in the victory, before struggling to run off a knock on his left foot.
The 20-year-old had replaced Shinji Okazaki on 65 minutes and received huge cheers and a standing ovation from the City fans at the King Power Stadium.
Iheanacho had gone down clutching his leg after a collision with Gladbach’s Laszlo Benes near the halfway line.
He tried to run the injury off at first, but soon went back down and had to be replaced by Leonardo Ulloa, as he trudged from the pitch without his boot on his left foot.
“I am still looking to find out, I don’t know whether it is ankle or Achilles but he seems fine,” said Shakespeare.
“The first thing is the physios and they aren’t showing great concern which is a good sign.” SHARE YOUR STORY WITH US VIA EMAIL: INFO@247NIGERIANEWSUPDATE.CO RECEIVE NEWS VIA OUR WHATSAPP, KINDLY TEXT +234 701 056 0394 TO ADD YOU CLICK HERE TO JOIN US ON OUR YOUTUBE CHANNEL FOR NEWS UPDATE CLICK HERE TO JOIN US ON TWITTER FOR INSTANT NEWS UPDATE: @247NGNEWSUPDATE CLICK HERE TO JOIN MILLIONS AROUND THE GLOBE TO READ NEWS ON OUR FACEBOOK FAN PAGE FOR INSTANT UPDATES ON INSTAGRAM CLICK HERE RECEIVE INSTANT NEWS UPDATE VIA OUR BBM BROADCAST: D3EDEFDF PLACE YOUR TEXT ADVERT BELOW:>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
