Super Eagles forward, Kelechi Iheanacho has joined the rest of his international colleagues at the camp of the Nigeria national team ahead of their friendly game against Corsica on Friday May 26.
With Iheanacho’s arrival on Wednesday night the number of players in the camp has risen to 16, with Ahmed Musa, Mikel Agu and Shehu Abdullahi also joining the 12 players who took part in their first training session yesterday.
Linked with a possible move away from Manchester City this summer, Iheanacho gave his view on a possible departure amidst rumours of interest in his services elsewhere, and talks of a fall out with coach Pep Guardiola.
“I’m happy to stay at Manchester City and keep fighting to help them achieve what they want to achieve.” Iheanacho said.
“Manchester City is a big team and we need to go far as a squad so we need everybody,” Iheanacho added.
“Of course everyone is competing but we compete as a team. The manager can only pick 11 players so everyone is working, doing well and giving 100 percent. So we keep working and see what comes around next season.
“He’s a great manager. He’s one of the best managers in the world — probably the best — so I’ve learnt, he’s taught me a lot,” he said.
“He knows football so I’m happy to be his player and to play for him in the team. I’m happy he’s my manager. I’m very, very lucky to have him as my manager in the team.
“We don’t have silverware this season so of course there’s going to be a bit of disappointment. We finished very well this season in the top four and qualified for the Champions League next season.
“The Premier League is not easy. Next season we’re going to come back stronger and it’s going to be a better season from us.”
