The Nigeria international has revealed that
he looks up to the legends and hopes to
put into practice what he learned from
them

Manchester City’s Kelechi Iheanacho has
labelled Wayne Rooney and Didier Drogba
as players he looks up to in the English
Premier League.
The 20-year-old hit the limelight last
season at the Etihad Stadium – scoring
eight times in 26 games, and since has
become a key figure in the Citizen’s squad
even with the arrival of Pep Guardiola this
term.
Iheanacho’s playing style has already
prompted fans to draw comparisons with
Robert Lewandowski, though the youngster
has revealed that it is another forward in
the English topflight greats who he looks
up to.
“I think I was watching Didier Drogba and
his team at Chelsea, and Wayne Rooney at
Manchester United as well,” Iheanacho told
Premierleague.com.
“They are great players that I am looking
up to as well, pick up lessons from them
and put in my football in the Premier
League.”
The Nigeria seeks his 15th appearance for
Manchester City this season when they
face Everton at the Goodison Park on
Sunday. The Citizens are fourth on the log
with 42 points from 20 games.
