Coach of Manchester City Pep Guardiola has spoken out on the goal scoring abilities of Nigerian forward Kelechi Iheanacho.
Iheanacho marked his first game for City since January with a goal in their 5-1 thrashing of Huddersfield Town, converting a low cross from Jesus Navas into the net for his 7th goal from 20 games this season.
However the manner in which he took his goal won’t come as a surprise to coach Pep Guardiola who has spoken out about the finishing of the Nigerian striker few hours before the game.
“I know his quality. I know, of course, he’s young and has a lot of things to improve – especially in winning duels and be strong in some positions.
“But he’s a guy who, in the boxes, is really good. He likes to come a little bit out of the box to play, but arriving at the right tempo and attacking the first post is amazing.
“So, as a guy, he doesn’t need many, many chances to score a goal.”
