Senior man, Kelechi Iheanacho, has influenced foreign soccer pundit to start conversing in Igbo Language. This is heartwarming. For those still making excuses for their inability to converse, Igbos are not recruiting. Igbotic is the new cool. 😋https://t.co/8k5nh2Z3LwAdvertisement

Joelah Noble also spoke Yoruba to Odion Jude Ighalo while he was at Manchester United.
Aside from the Quern of England, Super Eagles forward, Kelechi Iheanacho is arguably the biggest name in the country given his recent records and achievements for Leicester City.

He is Leicester City’s highest goal scorer this season with 19 goals.
