Lineker and Ian Wright dumbfounded by Iheanacho misses at Southampton
Former Leicester City great, Gary Lineker and Arsenal legend, Ian Wright have branded glaring misses in front of goal by Kelechi Iheanacho as incredible.
The Nigerian put two headers wide and a further chance over the bar as his club lost 1-0 to Southampton at St Mary’s stadium on Saturday.
Lineker and Ian Wright were dumbfounded by the misses.
“Leicester only had themselves to blame. So profligate in front of goal,” Lineker said.
Wright said he could not be a manager if players missed such clear chances in his team.
“You can’t miss the chances I saw today. This header, I don’t know what to say. It’s such a poor header. The next one, just head it back where it came from.
“This one, along the ground, curl it into the goalkeeper’s right corner. The last one from Maddison’s cross – he was brilliant today – I couldn’t be a manager seeing (a miss like) that (from Souttar). I don’t know how Brendan can be so calm in his interview.
“For you to be missing chances like that, you deserve to lose games.”
