Iheanacho gets Pellegrini praise after scoring again

02 December 2015, 11:34

Abuja - Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini has hailed Kelechi Iheanacho, following the attacker’s goal in City’s 4-1 win over Hull City in the Capital One Cup on Tuesday.

The 19-year old started from the bench, but replaced Ivorian Wilfried Bony – who had given City a first half lead –  after 71 minutes, and would go on to score his team’s second just nine minutes after coming on.

Speaking after the game, Pellegrini, who had some good words for his players, singled out Iheanacho for praise, stating that the youngster is always eager to learn.

“It was good for Kelechi (Iheanacho) to score,” Pellegrini said in a post-match interview.

“He is a very young player. He wants to learn more every day and scoring goals is important for his development.

“It is great for all the players to be involved in all competitions,” Pellegrini added.

The goal against Hull makes it three in 11 games in all competitions for the Nigerian. He has scored twice in the Capital One Cup – against Crystal Palace in the previous round and now against Hull City – and once in the Premier League, also against Crystal Palace.

Meanwhile, he made his senior debut for Nigeria in a 2018 World Cup qualifier against Swaziland last month.
