Iheanacho unsure of Manchester City status

Nigeria starlet, Kelechi Iheanacho, is still unsure of his status with the Manchester City first team in the 2015/16 season despite his blistering start in the club’s pre-season campaign.

Iheanacho was City’s most impressive performer in the Citizens’ opening day International Champions Cup victory over AS Roma in Melbourne, Australia, reports.

The 18-year-old scored a superb goal and also provided an assist for new signing, Raheem Sterling, as the Italians were put to the sword.

Despite his undeniable potential, Iheanacho is still not sure if he will be thrown into the deep end in the new season.

“The manager (Manuel Pellegrini) has promised me nothing.

“He’s just told me to keep working hard every day. So as yet I don’t know what my chance is, but I pray that it will come soon,” quoted Iheanacho as saying to Manchester Evening News.

Despite impressing against Roma, the Nigerian youngster featured for just 13 minutes against the most glamorous football club in the world – Real Madrid – in City’s second game of the tournament on Friday.

By the time Iheanacho came off the bench to replace Frenchman, Samir Nasri, Pellegrini men were already down by 1-4, and the scoreline stayed that way till the end.
