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.

"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.
