Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers could present Kelechi Iheanacho with the opportunity to resuscitate his career, according to Nigeria international Efe Ambrose.
Iheanacho has endured a rocky time at the Foxes since his move from Manchester City in 2017, and last season he managed just nine starts, scoring one goal.
Ultimately, his loss of form cost him a place in Nigeria’s squad to the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations, starting in Egypt on Friday.
According to Ambrose, the young Nigeria international – who was named Caf Most Promising Talent of the Year twice – needs to remain at the King Power Stadium where manager Rodgers could revive his declining career.
“I know Brendan Rodgers very well and he is a manager that can develop Iheanacho into one of the best strikers in the world,” Ambrose told Goal.
“However, the most important thing if for him to keep working hard. Once he can show Rodgers commitment, zeal, determination and passion to excel, he will not be looked down upon at Leicester City.
