Vardy, Iheanacho can be lethal strike force —Shakespeare

Jamie Vardy and new signing Kelechi Iheanacho can form a potent strike partnership, Leicester City manager Craig Shakespeare believes.

Shakespeare said the Nigeria international could be a good partner for Vardy.

“They can play together, most definitely,” said Shakespeare.

“You’ve seen how they linked up, and good players can. I think having the depth in the squad is important.

“I thought he was really unselfish for a player making his debut. You would probably think he might take that chance himself, but to spot Jamie, to play that in with the weight of pass he did for Jamie to finish it, it shows his awareness and his unselfishness.

“He’s young, he’s a good goalscorer, you see that he can link play up, his all-around game,” said Shakespeare. “He’s only going to get better.

“His goalscoring record is excellent. He gives us another dimension.

“He wants to get better, he wants to play regularly and hopefully we can give him that platform.”
