A short clip has surface online showing moments a UK presenter interviewed Nigerias’ Kelechi Iheanacho in his native igbo language.
The 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 speechless.
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.
The influence of the young Nigerian footballer is seemingly spreading like wildfire in the United Kingdom.
