Manchester City’s Kelechi Iheanacho has said he is not allowing recent encomiums get into head.
The Super Eagles forward has attracted a lot of praise from fans and pundits alike, as Pep Guardiola’s team maintain a perfect start in the new season.
Iheanacho has found himself deputising for Sergio Aguero during the Argentine’s three-match ban and became the first Nigerian player to feature and score in a Manchester Derby.
The 19-year-old insists he still has a lot to learn and is keeping his head down.
“I’m not letting all the praise get to my head because I still have a lot to learn in this game,” Iheanacho told BBC Sport.
“It’s been a very progressive period for me at the club, but playing alongside stars like Sergio [Aguero], Yaya [Toure] and other great players provides a big chance to keep working hard.
“I’m definitely learning, quietly listening and watching others closely every day – I know in doing that I will achieve bigger things in my career.
“We have experienced players in the team and as someone who is learning and improving, I am happy to take my chance when the manager calls,” he continued.
“Our manager has confidence in me and has been encouraging me.
“All I want to do right now is to keep learning under him and work hard for the club.
“I score goals not just because I am playing up front but because I get to play in a fantastic team.
“Our defenders and midfielders supply the passes and support for me to deliver, so it is a collective effort.”
