Super Eagles forward, Kelechi Iheanacho wins Premier League player of the month ahead of Kane, Mahrez

Leicester City forward, Kelechi Iheanacho, has been named the Premier League player of the month for March 2021.

The 24-year-old netted five times in three league appearances for the Foxes before the international break last month.

These goals included Iheanacho’s first Premier League hat-trick against Sheffield United.

The Super Eagles star won the award ahead of Chelsea defender, Andreas Christensen, Tottenham striker Harry Kane, West Ham’s Jesse Lingard, Manchester City’s Riyad Mahrez, Leeds goalkeeper Illan Meslier, Manchester United defender Luke Shaw and Brighton’s Leandro Trossard.

Iheanacho becomes the fourth Nigerian footballer to have ever won the prize, after Austin ‘Jay Jay’ Okocha, Osaze Odemwingie and Odion Ighalo.
