For now his focus is how to be in the plans of new coach Jose Peseiro whose style of play suits his abilities to finish chances. Peseiro’s decision to play 4-4-2 in two straight games is said to have excited the forward as that’s almost same system he is used to at Leicester City.

Furthermore, the team under Peseiro creates lot of chances which is also in favour of Iheanacho due to the fact that he comes alive in the box where his finishing is rated as one of the best in the Nigerian team.
