” Iheanacho will become a better player after this phase, he is a strong lad, a very positive minded being and level headed. He will regain his spot in the team, he just have to keep on working hard in training and wait for his chance, when it comes I know he won’t disappoint.

” Every player wants to play and when you are not getting into the matchday squad it can be so discouraging. But I have learnt to always pick the positives from all situation”, Mikel told Owngoalnigeria.com.
