Man City legend wants starting role for Iheanacho

02 December 2015, 15:10

London - Manchester City great Rodney Marsh wants manager Manuel Pellegrini to give Kelechi Iheanacho a starting role following his goal against Hull City in the Capital One Cup on Tuesday.

The Nigerian scored on his premier league debut against Crystal Palace, his only goal from nine appearances so far in the league but his fine form is very evident in the cup games.

In the Capital One Cup he has scored twice and his latest strike yesterday forced the legend to call for him to be a starter in key games this season.

"Time has come for Kelechi to get a run, if not alongside Aguero in twin striker role, then definitely when Aguero is out," he posted on twitter suggesting the 19 year old should start ahead of Bony.

Already Iheanacho is a senior International for Nigeria with two caps under his belts and he is widely tipped to be a big star for Nigeria and Africa in the coming years.

On his part the Nigerian credit his good form in front of goals to the motivations he gets from senior players in the team and coach Manuel Pellegrini.
