FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Former Super Eagles star and Golden Eaglets Assistant coach, Nduka Ugbade, has revealed why Kelechi Iheanacho has not been playing to his full potential at the English Premier League. Kelechi Iheanacho  The Foxes were labelled to have pulled off quite a coup when winning the race for the Nigerian from Manchester City. However, the 23-year-old is yet to reach his potential at King Power Stadium. Nigerian football great, Ugbade – who worked with Iheanacho as assistant coach of the Nigeria U17 and U2 teams, believes the wrong approach is being taken with the star. “Iheanacho’s coaches must know how best to use him,” he told Goal. “He is not an outright striker but he can play behind the main striker to provide assists while scoring goals. “Myself and Manu [Garba] know him very well and we know what he is capable of doing. All he needs now is getting regular playing time to get himself back into the game.” For Ugbade, learning different roles could be demanding for any young player, nevertheless, he suggests the Super Eagle will bounce back if he gains regular playing time at East Midland.
