Manchester City 20 year old Nigerian forward Kelechi Iheanacho who was left on the bench by manager Pep Guardiola in both legs of their champions League clash has reacted to their 3-1 win over Barcelona.

Two weeeks ago, City were mauled 1-4 by Barcelona in Camp Nou, with Iheanacho who played in the same stadium last season left on the bench by manager Pep Guardiola.

Yesterday they got their Champions League hopes back on track with a 3-1 win over Barcelona at the Etihad, but just like it was in the first leg, the Nigerian was left on the bench for the entire duration of the game.

However the joy of the victory, which has risen the hopes of fans of the club and increased their faith in manager Pep Guardiola, appears to have made the Nigerian forget his non participation in the game.

” Happy to be part of this great squad, we fight to the end. #CmonCity @ChampionsLeague” He posted on twitter with a picture of the team that played on the night.
