Nigerian international player, Kelechi Iheanacho reckoned everyone at his old club in Man City will support in Friday night’s Premier League opener between Leicester and Man United.
Super Eagles and Leicester City forward Kelechi Iheanacho has issued a warning to Manchester United that he is coming to score another Old Trafford goal tonight.
The former Manchester City striker Iheanacho also reckons everyone at his old club will cheer him on in Friday night’s showpiece season opener at Old Trafford.
The Super Eagles star scored the winner there in a 2-1 Manchester Derby triumph almost two years ago and is determined to hit the back of the net at United’s home again after rediscovering his best form this pre-season.
Iheanacho said: “I think everyone is looking forward to that game. Coming from Man City to Leicester and playing against Man United I think the City fans are going to support us in that game.
“I scored against United in the derby so it was a good experience and I am looking forward to hopefully doing it again.” Kelechi told Mirror.
The 21-year-old is in line to start against United ahead of England’s Jamie Vardy who is only just back from a post-World Cup holiday.
Iheanacho netted for a third successive pre-season game on Saturday against Lille, taking his tally to four goals this summer with a 2-1 win away to the French club.
“If I am chosen for the game against United I have to keep my goal-scoring record and work hard for the team,” said Iheanacho.
“I would like to be part of it and am looking forward to it. I think it is going to be a big season for the whole team and we are in good shape now.
“Last season it was difficult coming back from injury and trying to get the same fitness level. Sometimes things don’t go the way you want. But it is looking good this season.
“I am injury-free and will keep working hard and am looking forward to the games.
“The World Cup helped [He played in all three of Nigeria’s games in Russia, starting twice] — we didn’t get to go through but it was a good experience and good fitness.”
