When Leicester City's top scorer used Igbo language to respond to the team's 3-2 loss to West Ham, it was a surprising and hilarious moment. Following the small points gap between teams, the five-goal thriller game kicked off the chase for the EPL top four.
In response to their defeat, Kelechi Iheanacho took to Twitter to express his thoughts on the game. His message is as follows:
"Yesterday's outcome disappointed me".
"But God's will be done," the Igbo section of the post says.
Following his recent run of form, the Nigerian striker has been sensational for the English side. After scoring a hat trick against Manchester United, the striker earned the nickname "seniorman." He has been a prolific goal scorer for the English side.
Despite his excellent performance in their recent defeat, the striker managed to score twice before the end of the game.
His fans filled the comment section with praise for his flawless use of Igbo language.
Here are some examples of screenshots:
