Kelechi Iheanacho has revealed what his presence brings into Manchester City following his impressive display on Saturday.
The 20-year-old entered the fray at half-time while Pep Guardiola men were 1-0 behind Southampton at the Etihad and his impact was felt ten minutes later, as he equalised for the citizens that ensured that they maintained their top position on the English Premier League table.
And he has explained what he offers the team regardless of what role is being assigned to him.
“It’s just what I need to do as a football player, to come in and bring life whenever I’m starting, whenever I’m coming in,” he told MCFC TV.
“[I’m] Ready to play, ready to go in there and run in the box, to run everywhere and get the ball and everything and so to bring life to the team.”
The Nigeria international has scored three goals for Manchester City in seven appearances, coming off the bench three times this season in the English top-flight league.
