- Leicester City returned to pre-season training in Seagrave last week
- Striker Kelechi Iheanacho spoke to LCFC TV between training sessions at the Club's training ground
- The Nigeria international discussed the close-knit environment among the Foxes first team
- He is also targeting an improvement, most individually and collectively, across the new campaign

Iheanacho, City's top goalscorer last season, was part of the group which reported to LCFC Training Ground last week as Brendan Rodgers' men began their preparations for the 2021/22 campaign. 

After the first week back in Seagrave, the 24-year-old former Manchester City striker spoke with excitement for the coming season and provided an insight into the relaxed, but determined, mood which currently exists in the Leicester camp. 

"It feels good, it’s sunny!" he laughed, speaking to LCFC TV. "I’m happy to be back. Pre-season is on, so you know what it means: running, running, running! Of course, it’s good to be back.

As I said before, we need to concentrate and focus on the games one after the other and hopefully we’ll get there in the end. I pray for more goals, but most importantly, more wins and more points.

"Now, we need to concentrate on the work that we have ahead. We just need to focus and get through the pre-season and focus on the new season. Of course, it’s good to be back with this special group of lads. We’re like a family. We’re all friends, so it’s always good to be back with everybody.

"We’re hoping we’ll be back fit and strong so we can work together again. I’m happy, coming back here, and hopefully we’ll enjoy it and even enjoying the running as well!"

Iheanacho ended last term in magnificent goalscoring form with 19 goals in all competitions representing his best season in a City shirt, but the Nigeria international is now focused on doing his bit to help the Club go even further towards their ambitions in future.

"Obviously, I scored goals last season," he added. "I think, this season, we really need do more and focus on our games. I have a good feeling that, this season, it might fall for us and we’ll get what we want.

"As I said before, we need to concentrate and focus on the games one after the other and hopefully we’ll get there in the end.

"I pray for more goals, but most importantly, more wins and more points."
