Kelechi Iheanacho Faces Two Year Jail Sentence Over Legal Row With Former Agent



20-year-old Nigerian footballer, Kelechi Iheanacho, who might be going to Leicester City this season, might be facing a two years jail sentence in U.S after he was accused of misleading a Pennsylvanian court.

Kelechi Iheanacho, who was dragged to court by previous representatives, American-based First Eleven Management, but pulled out of a contract with them two years ago to sign with Stellar, filed pleadings denying that he knew or spent time with Henry Galeano, who on his on claims said he is his former agent.

According to him, he thought Galeano was an alias used by First Eleven Management co-owner Robert Zanicky. But the football agent was the company’s registered FIFA-licensed agent.

However the American court has been handed photos and documents which suggested the Nigerian striker met Galeano on many occasions.

SUN UK reports that the crucial legal question for Iheanacho, according to the report, will be if the young star did more than merely meet Galeano or happened to be with him on occasions. It certainly seems clear they at least met.
