NIGERIAN striker, Kelechi Iheanacho, says it will be heartwarming to put smiles on fans’ faces as his club Man City tackles city rival, Manchester United today at Old Trafford.
The starlet was his country’s match winner against Tanzania in a Afcon 2017 qualifier played last weekend in Uyo, Nigeria, netting in the decider 12 minutes before stoppage time.
Left-footed ace, Iheanacho wishes to raise the roof again.
“It was amazing what I did with my country last weekend. I am here now with my team, the training has been special because we know we are the league leaders, we are not ready to leave where we are,’’ he told The Citizens after Friday’s training.
The Nigerian has scored eight times so far in his Premier League career, at an average of 96 minutes per goal.
Meanwhile, Manchester United’s Ivorian defender, Eric Bailly is looking to shut out all aggressors.
‘This is my first derby in England and I have to prove myself, ‘’ he said shortly being awarded his Player Of The Month title.
“For me, it is going to be the biggest match and helping the team to keep a clean sheet is the minimum of duty”.
