The influence of Nigerian footballer, Kelechi Iheanacho seems to be spreading fast in the United Kingdom as he was interviewed in the Igbo language by a foreign presenter.
A short clip from the interview surfaced online and 24-year-old Leicester City forward was evidently surprised by the Premier League presenter who greeted him and asked for his name in his traditional language before the show continued.
Iheanacho was star struck for a few seconds he couldn’t spill everything in his mouth afterwards, but he expressed how surprised he was.

The Nigerian star was on target for Leicester City in their 2-1 defeat to Chelsea and became the only player to have scored at least a Premier League goal every day of the week this season.
Despite playing just 30 minutes at Stamford Bridge, the Super Eagles forward still found a way to get on the scores sheet to help cut down his side’s deficit in the 76th minute.
However, they were unable to complete the dramatic comeback before the final whistle and now, they have been pushed to fourth position on the table with their last game against Tottenham Hotspur.
