Leicester City manager, Claude Puel wants Kelechi Iheanacho to keep improving.
This was after his impressive performance in the Carabao Cup against Manchester City on Tuesday.
Iheanacho has been restricted to just 11 games for the first team, scoring once.
But the Nigerian international showed glimpses of his talent in the 4-3 penalty shootout loss to his erstwhile club.
The Foxes boss praised the youngster but urged him to “work to improve.”
“[Iheanacho] tried, he shoot on target. He had a good opportunity in the first half. He gave his best,” Puel told Leicester Mercury.
“He’s a young player, he needs to continue to work to improve.
“It was important to see him, to give him game-time. It was a good opportunity for him and other players.
“I was happy with the squad because it was a good level of quality on the pitch and it was a good response after our game against Crystal Palace.
“I have a good feeling with the squad.
“Kele, like others players, like Slimani, like Musa, they are different players. It’s important for them and for the squad.
“We have a lot of players sometimes in the same position and it’s difficult to manage this. It’s important to keep the positive attitude, for Kele it’s the same thing.”
Leicester will host Manchester United at King Power Stadium on Saturday and Iheanacho will hope to play.
