Kelechi Iheanacho Leicester City
You can call him the classic Igbo man! The 21-year-old definitely deserves compliments for his show of dressing after the Foxes first away win

Kelechi Iheanacho has proved to his followers that he is a proud Igbo (an ethnic group in Nigeria) man, after rocking a traditional cap to the Liberty Stadium.

The 21-year-old was an unused substitute in Leicester City’s 2-1 win over Swansea City in a Premier League game on Saturday as Federico Fernández’s own goal and Shinji Okazaki’s goal eased Michael Appleton’s men to victory.

After the game, Iheanacho in his hilarious and unique manner, wore the team’s jacket and rocked the Igbo cap on it as he revels in the Foxes first league win since August.

We call Iheanacho the classic Igbo man - Yay or Nah?

 

First away win today, great performance from the team #fox @ndidi25 #igboboy
