Leicester’s Kelechi Iheanacho discloses his biggest regret
Kelechi Iheanacho, the Leicester City forward, has made it clear that he wishes his mother was alive to celebrate his success.
The mother of Iheanacho, Mercy, died when he was only 16 years.
The unfortunate death happened in a hospital after a brief illness.
Few months after Mercy’s death, Iheanacho rose to stardom, leading Nigeria to the FIFA U17 World Cup in UAE.
His performances at the competition earned him a move to Manchester City, before he eventually joined Leicester City.
“I wish I had my mom here to celebrate with me, because she is one person in my life that always stood by me.
“It breaks my heart when I remember she is no more and she’s not even enjoying all this.
“Death is unfair. Imagine having the chance to buy her whatever she’d like to have now, take her wherever she’d love to go, yet death took her away,” Iheanaco was quoted by Brila.net.
