Leicester City coach Claude Puel is excited with Iheanacho’s pre-season form and has urged the super eagles forward to replicate the same form in the EPL.
“He (Iheanacho) is focused,” Puel told Leicester Mercury on Wednesday.
“He (Iheanacho) made a good performance (against Lille), but the most important thing is to present against Manchester United. We know a friendly game is always different. Of course, I am happy about his (Iheanacho) performance and the performance of the other players.
“It has been a difficult pre-season with all the international players coming back step by step and without the good levels and freshness necessary to play 90 minutes.
“We will see against Manchester United in the first game. It is a problem to find the good balance and the strong team to play the whole game.
“We have different questions about some of the players. We will see. It is a little difficult to prepare a game for Manchester United without all the solutions. I will try to pick a team to make a good performance.”
Iheanacho scored four goals in three matches for the Foxes in pre-season.
Leicester City will visit Manchester United at Old-Trafford in the season opener on Friday night.
