I never lost belief despite goal drought: Iheanacho

Published on: 17 April 2021

Nigerian international Kelechi Iheanacho admits to suffering during his year-long goal drought but insists he never lost his self-belief.

The Leicester City striker went 12 months without scoring but is now looking to fire his team to the FA Cup final. Leicester face Southampton in Sunday's semi-final at Wembley as they aim for their first final since 1969.

"It was a difficult, difficult period but that belief is still there," he said. "Sometimes it just won't click, whatever you do. Even if you try to do the right thing it won't click. Then when the wrong things happen you lose your head.

"You keep trying and trying and trying and still it won't come - and you think you're losing it

The Nigeria international has a goal every 92 minutes in all competitions this term and has a better minutes-per-goal ratio than Harry Kane, Mohamed Salah and Bruno Fernandes.

He has also scored 13 times in 18 FA Cup appearances and has never lost a tie when he has netted.
