Nigeria international Kelechi Iheanacho has stated that he has a good relationship with Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola.
The 20-year-old striker has battled for regular game-time under Guardiola - having played 15 English Premier League games - netting four goals in the process.
“I’ve got a good relationship with the manager – everyone here has a good relationship with him, ” Iheanacho told Mirror.
“We are happy to have him here. He will take this club far, because he is a great manager.
“When you are not playing, you need to train harder. You need to keep faith," the talented forward continued.
“And when you come into the team, you have to do exactly what your team-mates are doing to help the team achieve something.”
Iheanacho is competing with Argentine Sergio Aguero, Spaniard Nolito and Brazilian Gabriel Jesus for a place in Guardiola's starting line-up at City.
