Leicester needed to win on the final day of the 2022/23 season and for Everton to drop points at home to AFC Bournemouth. Although the Foxes were 2-1 victors at King Power Stadium, a 1-0 success for Everton left City two points adrift inside the relegation zone. After nine often glorious years in the top flight, the Club will play in the Sky Bet Championship next term.

"I’m so disappointed," Iheanacho told LCFC TV at full-time. "I have no words. I don’t know what to say.

"I just say thanks to everyone at the Football Club, the fans and everyone that supported us right from the start to now. If life kicks you, you need to stand up and keep going. We’ll try to keep going, stay strong, and hopefully we’ll get back up."

That support from the Blue Army means a great deal to Iheanacho. The Foxes have been roared on by capacity home crowds and full away ends all season. 

"It’s a bad time for the Club and for everyone," the Nigeria international added. "We can’t go back now, thinking about it. We have to move forward. The fans were really amazing today. Even at the end, they were clapping and trying to support us. It’s a hard one, going down, so I just want to thank them for all their support and everything they’ve done.

"They supported the Club right from the start. We’ll try our best to come back up."
