Kelechi Iheanacho, the Leicester City forward, has said he loves playing alongside the Napoli striker, Victor Osimhen because they understand each other’s games.
Iheanacho described Osimhen as a fantastic talent and a great goalscorer.
He said this ahead of Nigeria’s 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifier against the Black Stars of Ghana on Friday night in Kumasi.
“Everybody knows he’s a fantastic striker. He’s a great goal poacher,” Iheanacho told FIFA’s official website.
“He has great talent. I’m always very happy playing alongside him because I know his game, I know his strengths, and he knows mine as well.
“Sometimes, I find myself playing behind him. I think we have a good partnership and hopefully, we’ll work more together going forward.”
