Congratulations to Kelechi Iheanacho who has won the Premier League Player of the Month Award!

The Leicester City player was named the EA SPORTS Player of the Month for March (2021) after scoring 5 times in the month of March. He’s the fourth Nigerian to win the prize, after Jay Jay Okocha, Peter Odemwingie and Odion Ighalo. The 24-year-old is also the first Leicester City player to claim the prize since Jamie Vardy in October 2019. 

 In a statement, 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.”

Iheanacho, who was born in Imo State, Nigeria, plays as a forward for Leicester City and the Nigeria national team.

We wish him more success!
