Kelechi Iheanacho insists Leicester City players are working hard in training ahead of the start of the new season, reports Completesports.com.

The Foxes finished in fifth position in the Premier League last season, narrowly missing out on a Champions League place for the second consecutive season.

Brendan Rodgers’ side returned for pre-season training early this month and have played two friendlies against Burton Albion and Wycombe Wanderers.

They will be up against Queens Park Rangers in their friendly on Saturday.

“It’s been amazing,” the Nigeria striker told LCFC TV.

“We’ve been working really hard. You know, obviously, it’s pre-season, so we need to work hard and get minutes and prepare for this season. We’ve been working really hard and preparing ourselves, so it’s going quite well.

“It’s not been a bad week at all. It’s hard and tough, but I think the last week was harder! It’s been going pretty good and, of course, we need minutes and game time for everyone. Hopefully that’s where we’re heading and I think we’re going in the right direction.”

Iheanacho believes, although pre-season friendlies are fundamentality about fitness, that Leicester’s players are eager to give the Blue Army something to cheer this weekend at QPR.

“Obviously, it’s to get minutes, but I think the results… of course, we want to get results in these games,” he added. “It didn’t turn out that way [at Wycombe], but hopefully in the remaining games, we’ll get results and we’ll be ready for the season.

“It’s not going to be easy [at QPR] but we’ll try and get something out of that game. Obviously, they’re a good side. They’re going to be difficult to break down, but of course, we’re working on our fitness level and tactics-wise, the coaches and the gaffer are all there. We’ll get through tomorrow.”

City’s top goalscorer in 2020/21 says he is feeling the benefits of the Club’s pre-season efforts and is confident the squad will be ready for the new campaign, which starts with the FA Community Shield and includes both domestic and European duties.

“I’m getting fitter day by day and I think everybody is getting fitter,” the 24-year-old continued.

“The coaches are doing a good job to get everybody at a very good level of fitness. We’re getting there and, before the season starts, everybody will be ready to crack on.”
