‘I still have a lot to learn’ – Iheanacho

September 26, 2016

The 19-year-old is keeping his feet firmly on the ground and is eyeing improvement under Pep Guardiola at the Etihad Stadium.

Kelechi Iheanacho is refusing to take his place in the team for granted despite being a regular face in Manchester City squad.

The Nigerian has earned rave reviews for his eye-catching performances but he is not carried away as he hopes to keep getting better.

“I’m not letting all the praise get to my head because I still have a lot to learn in this game,” Iheanacho told BBC Sport.

“It’s been a very progressive period for me at the club, but playing alongside stars like Sergio [Aguero], Yaya [Toure] and other great players provides a big chance to keep working hard.

“I’m definitely learning, quietly listening and watching others closely every day – I know in doing that I will achieve bigger things in my career.”

“We have experienced players in the team and as someone who is learning and improving, I am happy to take my chance when the manager calls,” he continued.

“Our manager has confidence in me and has been encouraging me.

“All I want to do right now is to keep learning under him and work hard for the club.

“I score goals not just because I am playing up front but because I get to play in a fantastic team.
