These are troubling times for Manchester City striker Kelechi Iheanacho.
He is currently facing problems in the US after allegations were made against him that he may have misled a court in Pennsylvania.
Iheanacho, 20, is embroiled in legal battles with his previous representatives, American-based First Eleven Management, after pulling out of a contract with them two years ago to sign with Stellar, who look after Real Madrid’s Gareth Bale.
Iheanacho filed pleadings that denied he knew or spent time with Henry Galeano, who separately claims he is his former agent. The Nigerian — who is hoping to move to Leicester this week — claimed he believed Galeano was an alias used by First Eleven Management co-owner Robert Zanicky. New Yorker Galeano was the company’s registered Fifa-licensed agent.
SunSport and the American court have been handed a series of photos and documents that will require an explanation from the Nigerian international. The crucial legal question for Iheanacho will be whether he did more than merely meet Galeano or happened to be with him on occasions. It certainly seems clear they at least met.
