'Kelechi's Never Missed A Penalty' - Ndidi Names Iheanacho As Leicester's Top Man When It Comes To Spot Kicks
Wilfred Ndidi has argued that his international teammate Kelechi Iheanacho is Leicester City's top player when it comes to taking penalty kicks, and it has been echoed by Austrian left-back Christian Fuchs.

Since Iheanacho arrived at the King Power Stadium from Manchester City, the Foxes have been awarded 21 penalty kicks, but the Super Eagle appears to be way down in the pecking order of spot kick takers.

Premier League Golden Boot winner Jamie Vardy is the designated penalty taker, scoring 14 out of 17, while  James Maddison, Ayoze Perez and Demarai Gray have been chosen to take the rest.

When asked to name the Leicester City player he'd back to score a decisive kick, Ndidi was quoted as saying by Leicestershire Live : "Kelechi’s never missed a penalty. I’ve never seen him miss a penalty," to which Fuchs agreed.

Perez doubted Ndidi, saying : "When is he even taking penalties?"

Ndidi replied : "You’ve not seen him? He never misses," before Fuchs added: "He’s unbelievable. The best penalty taker I’ve seen."

Iheanacho scored the winning penalty for Leicester City against Wolverhampton Wanderers in the Carabao Cup in September 2018.
