The 20year old Nigerian international was a revelation for man city last season, where he scored match winning goals as substitutes, in a man city team that was in disarray. His efforts were not appreciated back then as he was always seen jubilating alone, Yaya Toure was meant to be a brother but turned his back, kelechi Iheanacho had the best goal per minute ratio of any player, Averaging a goal every 93.9 minutes.
He was the third highest goal scorer for city last season, even when city lacked a winning spirit Iheanacho was in high spirit. The news of Guardiola becoming city’s next manager did series of harms to the team, the current coach was devastated because he felt betrayed, many city players didn’t know what the future held for them, they witnessed a dip in form, Leicester was the first team to expose their myriad of problems, afterwards City kept losing till top four became a serious issue for a potentially great team.
Guardiola arrived and sent a lot players, considered to be surplus to requirements on loan, he rejuvenated city by buying best young and good players money can buy.
Because of his preference for young talents one would have expected Iheanacho will be given more playing time as it was for sane and Sterling but the young lad is now rotting on the bench, even when Gabriel
Jesus was injured, pep does not fancy Iheanacho for reasons known to him, sane underperformed throughout last year except in December, Bravo was so porous that a player will do better in goal than him, yet he kept faith in them. In their last FA cup match against Arsenal when Aguero was substituted I was hoping Iheanacho will replace him, Delph was brought in instead, while Debruyne moved up front, iheanacho was only brought in after arsenal has sealed the game, the Nigerian should follow in the foot steps of Moussa Dembele who left fulham for Celtic and Andrea Belloti who is now in Torino, it is evident that Gabriel has upper hand in nailing a starting role than kelechi, money shouldn’t be the only driving force for him.
