Super Eagles forward, Kelechi Iheanacho has been named Premier League’s Player of the Month after his remarkable feat in the nth of March.
Kelechi Iheanacho emerged as the most outstanding player in March after scoring 5 goals in three in three games including a hat trick against Sheffield United at the Kingpower Stadium.
The Nigerian was shortlisted alongside eight other players and he beat the likes of Tottenham Hotspur’s Harry Kane, Manchester United’s Shaw and Manchester City’s Raheem Sterling to the award – his very first.
While reacting to his achievement, Kelechi Iheanacho said;
I’m so pleased and honoured to win this award. It’s great to be recognised, but I couldn’t have done it without the support of my team-mates and the manager.
I’m really enjoying playing at the minute and hopefully, I can push on and help the team to finish as high as possible this season.
Kelechi Iheanacho becomes the fourth Nigerian to win the award after the likes of Jay-Jay Okocha (Bolton Wanderers, Osaze Odemwingie: September 2010, April 2011, February 2012 and Odion Ighalo: December 2015)
