Kelechi Iheanacho Subbed Off Before Half-Time For Poor Sportsmanship

By Mike Parrott

Leicester City Striker Kelechi Iheanacho was pulled off and substituted moments before Half-Time by Brendan Rodgers for an act of 'poor sportsmanship'.

Kelechi Iheanacho has just been substituted by Brendan Rodgers for Leicester City for an act of 'poor sportsmanship' according to quite a few fans.

The Nigerian Striker was given the ball to put out of play due to an injury to a Norwich City player. However, instead of giving the ball back, Iheanacho ran with the ball to try and capitalise on the moment.

The Striker was taken out outside the Norwich box and was promptly pulled by Brendan Rodgers.

Fans on Twitter have had their say on the bizarre moment, mostly agreeing with Rodgers' decision, but some fans believed it was good from Iheanacho to seize the moment.

The moment is eerily similar to what Leeds United did last Season in the Championship against Aston Villa where Leeds scored a goal after a Villa player went down.

Leeds Manager Marcelo Bielsa was that infuriated by his team that he let Villa walk a goal in off kick-off to put the score 1-1.
