Iheanacho thanks Aguero, Bony for goals


iheanachoNigerian youngster, Kelechi Iheanacho, has thanked Argentine striker, Sergio Aguero, for his good form and goals for Manchester City this season.

Iheanacho has scored three goals in all competitions for Manchester City this season, his latest coming in the Citizens’ 4-1 win over Hull City in the League Cup on Tuesday.

The 19-year-old forward has now taken the time to thank Aguero and City’s Ivoirian marksman, Wilfried Bony, for the roles they have played in his development.

“They talk to me everyday in training, giving me advice and encouraging me to keep going and doing well.

“They tell me I will be a great player one day, so I will keep listening and working hard.

“The manager also gives me great advice, telling me to play simple and score goals.

“It’s always a pleasure to score a goal, and it was a good goal, a good reaction to run to the front post,” Iheanacho told

First-team chances have come in far and few for Iheanacho, but he accepts the fact he is still on a learning curve.

“City are a big team and I am just coming up as a young player, so I am not worried.

“One day I will start playing regularly for the team. There are plenty of good players in the Elite Development Squad (EDS) and I feel like I am flying the flag for them – they can all do what I am doing.
