Europa League: Iheanacho Stopped At The Border, Out Of Leicester/ Legia Warsaw Clash


Super Eagles striker Kelechi Iheanacho will reportedly miss out of Leicester’s Europa League clash with Legia Warsaw after being turned away by Polish border control, reports.

According to Sky sportsnews, the striker travelled to Warsaw with the Foxes but a problem with his travel documents meant he was not allowed into the country.

The Foxes face Legia on Thursday but are now without the duo of Kelechi Iheanacho and Wilfred Ndidi who is serving his suspension after being sent off in the opening day clash against Napoli at the King Power Stadium.

Boss Brendan Rodgers said: “We’ve had an issue with Kelechi. His documentation coming into the country wasn’t sufficient, so he wasn’t able to travel. He will be unavailable for the game.

“The paperwork didn’t allow him to enter the country. We’ll have to look at that when we’re back.”

Legia Warsaw top Group C after beating Spartak Moscow 1-0 in their opening game while Leicester gave up a 2-0 lead to draw 2-2 with Napoli.
