London - Manchester City striker Kelechi Iheanacho is prepared to welcome his new manager Pep Guardiola to the club following the exit of Manuel Pellegrini, SuperSport reports.
The Nigeria international scored 15 goals for the Etihad club in his first season in England, thanks to the belief of Pellegrini in the young lad.
News24 reports that he scored City’s only goal in a 1-1 draw against Swansea, a result that fired the club to the UEFA Champions League next season.
Iheanacho is now looking forward to the arrival of the former Barcelona coach.
"There is a great manager coming in and you have to be happy about that.
