Iheanacho allays injury fears

25 August 2016, 12:22Israel Ojoko

London - Manchester City forward Kelechi Iheanacho has calmed down fears of a long term injury layoff.

The Nigeria international was stretchered off the pitch in Manchester City's 1-0 win against Steaua Bucuresti in the second leg of their play-off tie in the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday night.

Fabian Delph scored the only goal on the night to ensure a 6-0 aggregate win.

For what seemed to be a hamstring injury, Iheanacho was replaced with Fernandinho in the 74th minutes.

But the 19-year-old, who made his first Champions League start on Wednesday, said he is doing just fine.

"Great result for the team. Very pleased we've qualified for the Champions League group stage. Thank you everyone for your messages. I'm pleased to inform you all that I am okay," he wrote on his Instagram page.

News24 reported that Watford striker Odion Ighalo, Chelsea midfielder John Obi Mikel and Manchester City’s Iheanacho were listed in a 35-man provisional list for the football event of the 2016 Rio Olympics, though only Mikel made the final cut.
