Nigeria International Kelechi Iheanacho insists he wants to be a Manchester City “great” and is banking on hard work amongst others to help him achieve his objective.
The 19-year-old has made an impressive start to life at City scoring once in four league appearances for the Citizens.
He says playing for City represents a “dream come true.”
“It’s a dream come true for me to play at this level. There is enough confidence given to me from the manager and team.
“I’m hoping to be part of the great things that happen to this team. I hope to be one of the great players -it’s my dream to be a great player in this team,” Iheanacho was quoted as saying on the club’s official website. He then took the time to praise his teammates at City who have been providing inspiration as he continues his professional football education.
“They give me confidence, many of them – Yaya (Toure), Sergio (Aguero), (David) Silva, Samir (Nasri), Gael Clichy as well – he encourages me every time to keep going, keep going, keep chasing the defenders.
“I wasn’t happy when he was injured so I’m hoping for him to recover quick to give me more confidence. I really love them and I’m happy to work with them.”
