Coach of the Super Eagles of Nigeria Gernot Rohr says out of favour Manchester City forward Kelechi Iheanacho has the quality to play regularly for the Citizens.
Iheanacho has not made the matchday squad for the team in their last four games, a situation which many believed was triggered by the signing of Brazilian forward Gabriel Jesus.
Gabriel Jesus fine form has not only kept Iheanacho out of the matchday squad, he has also reduced star forward Sergio Kun Aguero to the role of a substitute.
However the coach of the senior team of Nigeria believes that 20 year old Iheanacho has qualities which manager Pep Guardiola is aware of, and if he doesn’t get to play him, he will suggest the forward leave the Etihad.
” Kelechi has qualities and his manager is aware of that, but sometimes it depends on how the team plays. If he (Kelechi) is not getting games at City, the logical thing to do will be to move elsewhere and play”, Rohr told Owngoalnigeria.com in Sagamu.
