Iheanacho will succeed with City – Yaya Toure
Ivory Coast star, Yaya Toure has tipped Nigerian youngster, Kelechi Iheanacho, to record massive success with Manchester City in future.
The former Golden Eaglets playmaker has impressed with Manchester City in the club’s tour to the United States with Manuel Pellegrini praising the 17-year old’s talents.
Toure, the reigning African Footballer of the Year, has moved to salute the prowess of the Flying Eagles midfielder.
“Kelechi is an exciting player. I love the way he plays and I feel that he will have a good career at the club and go on to become one of the players of the future,” supersport.com quoted Toure as saying on the club’s official website, mcfc.com.
Iheanacho has been impressive for City in pre-season and scored in his senior debut against Kansas City on July 23.
His performance against the MLS side was so impressive that Pellegrini described him as the “future” of the club.
He showed his display against Kansas City was no fluke when he netted his second goal in as many games against AC Milan four days later.
