Kelechi Iheanacho is confident that Leicester City will do very well next season.

The Nigeria international scored 19 goals for the Foxes last season and he is hopeful that he will continue being reliable moving forward.

“Obviously, I scored goals last season,” Iheanacho told the club’s official website.

“I think, this season (2021/22), we really need to do more and focus on our games. I have a good feeling that this season, it might fall for us and we will get what we want, we want the title.

“As I said before, we need to concentrate and focus on the games, one after the other and hopefully, we will get there in the end.

“I pray for more goals, but most importantly, more wins and more points.”

Iheanacho also expressed his excitement about finally being able to re-join the former league champions for pre-season.

“It feels good, it is sunny! I am happy to be back. Pre-season is on, so you know what it means, running, running, running.

“Of course, it’s good to be back. Now, we need to concentrate on the work that we have ahead. We just need to focus and get through the pre-season and focus on the new season.

“It is good to be back with this special group of lads. We are like a family. We are all friends, so it is always good to be back with everybody. We are hoping we will be back fit and strong so we can work together again.

“I am happy, coming back here, and hopefully we will enjoy it and even enjoy the running as well.”

Leicester had narrowly missed out on qualifying for the Uefa Champions League after finishing fifth with 66 points, a point less than Chelsea who finished fourth.

They won 20 out of the 38 matches they played, drawing six and losing 12. They scored 68 goals in the process and conceded 50.

City will be starting their 2021/22 campaign with a home match against Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Brendan Rodgers brought in Zambian striker Patson Daka from Red Bull Salzburg. Alongside Iheanacho and Jamie Vardy, the three forwards are expected to give Premier League defences sleepless nights next season.
