The tactician has urged the Citizens to stop playing the 20-year-old out of position, claiming he functions well behind a striker
Kennedy Ezenwere has told Manchester City that they are playing Kelechi Iheanacho out of position, claiming the Nigerian international performs better as a second striker.
The Taye Academy handler said Iheanacho is also comfortable in the attacking midfield role, or on the flanks being a natural left footer.
“Kelechi is best utilised as a support striker,” Ezenwere told Manchestereveningnews
“He can play as an attacking midfielder, and also play from the flanks. He is a natural left footer so can play from inside left.”
“He is good in taking free kicks,” he said. “It is 100 percent possible that he will score against Algeria.
“When he was in my team, almost all the competitions we participated he came out as highest goalscorer.
“Kelechi will tell me I will score two goals in this match and he always delivers. That’s a natural gift.”
