Vardy: “Unselfish” Iheanacho Will Be Fit For Arsenal Clash

Vardy: “Unselfish” Iheanacho Will Be Fit For Arsenal Clash

By James Agberebi:

Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy has expressed confidence that the Foxes' new Nigerian signing Kelechi Iheanacho will recover in time for their first Premier League game of the new season against Arsenal at the Emirates on Friday.

Iheanacho made his debut for Leicester in their 2-1 friendly win against Monchengladbach, coming on in the second half, and provided the assist for the second goal scored by Vardy.

But moments later, Iheanacho who only completed his £25 million move on Thursday,  had to be replaced by Leonardo Ulloa after suffering a knock.

 Vardy  praised Iheanacho for unselfishly laying the pass for him to score against the Bundesliga side.

"It was very unselfish [of Iheanacho]. He’s seen that I’m in the middle alone when he’s gone through and the ‘keeper has gone across to him," Vardy told Leicester TV.

"It’s unfortunate that he took a slight knock but I’m sure he’ll be fine for next week."

And on his two goals which gave Leicester the victory, Vardy said: “It’s always nice to get goals, especially as a striker. I’ve got two and hopefully that will take me forward into next week.”
