"He's a very important player for us. He's just 18 and started working with our squad last season, but he was unlucky and had a big injury in the last three months of the season," Pellegrini said to AFP.

"This year he started pre-season with the squad and will be a very important player for the future."

"He's one of the reasons I didn't bring another striker in when we sold Edin Dzeko. He deserves that chance. I told him to go and score a goal."

"I was going to make the substitution before, because Wilfried Bony had only worked the last few days with the team, but he told me he was okay.That's why I kept him on, but Kelechi deserved more minutes. It was important he took that chance," said Pellegrini.
