Iheanacho: I'm not letting all the praise get to my head | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper f


Kelechi Iheanacho is refusing to take his place in the team for granted despite being a regular face in Manchester City squad.

The Nigerian has earned rave reviews for his eye-catching performances but he is not carried away as he hopes to keep getting better.

"I'm not letting all the praise get to my head because I still have a lot to learn in this game," Iheanacho told BBC Sport.

"It's been a very progressive period for me at the club, but playing alongside stars like Sergio [Aguero], Yaya [Toure] and other great players provides a big chance to keep working hard.

"I'm definitely learning, quietly listening and watching others closely every day - I know in doing that I will achieve bigger things in my career."

"We have experienced players in the team and as someone who is learning and improving, I am happy to take my chance when the manager calls," he continued.

"Our manager has confidence in me and has been encouraging me.

"All I want to do right now is to keep learning under him and work hard for the club.

"I score goals not just because I am playing up front but because I get to play in a fantastic team.

"Our defenders and midfielders supply the passes and support for me to deliver, so it is a collective effort."
