Former Tottenham manager, Tim Sherwood, has said that Kelechi Iheanacho is now undroppable for Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers.
He, however, says he feels sorry for the Nigerian international because when the striker joined Leicester from Manchester City he thought he would play every minute at the King Power.
Sherwood noted that though the dream of playing every game did not happen when the player expected it, Iheanacho is now an important member of the Leicester City squad.
According to him, Brendan Rodgers can no longer afford to drop the Super Eagles star from the starting lineup.
At a point many football lovers wrote off Iheanacho as he was scantily used as a sub, however, the Nigerian international has become the most important player at the King Power Stadium in the last two months.
“It has been forced upon him (Brendan Rodgers) a little bit, there was no Maddison, there was no Ayoze Perez,” Sherwood said on Premier League Productions’ The Weekend Preview on Friday afternoon.
“He played him (Iheanacho) when Vardy was injured but he stuck with the two because you cannot drop him at the moment.
“He is undroppable, fantastic goals that he scores. I feel sorry for him, he has come from Manchester City, he probably thought he was going to play every minute of every game, didn’t materialize like that.
“Now he has kept himself right, he’s very professional, he’s had the opportunity and he’s showing everyone what he can do.”
