Guardiola Provides Answer On Iheanacho’s Absence From Man City Matchday Squad


Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has replied fans of the club who are keen on knowing why Nigerian forward Kelechi Iheanacho is no longer in the team.


Iheanacho has not been listed in the last three matchday squad of the club, and he appears to have lost his spot since the signing of Brazilian forward Gabriel Jesus.

The Brazilian scored both goals against Swansea City, his third goals in as many games. A form that has also kept star forward Sergio Aguero on the bench.

Shortly after the Swansea City game Guardiola spoke on the difficulties of leaving some players out of the team including Kelechi Iheanacho.

“It has not been easy for Sergio, but there are five guys in this position and he remains one of the most important players in our squad.

“He’s going to play with and without Gabriel, but today I decided to stick with the three guys up front because they played so well against Palace and West Ham

“His reaction to not starting today was perfect. Don’t worry about that. It is difficult to leave players like Bravo, Fernando, Otamendi and Kelechi out because they all deserve to play.”
