Why I allowed Iheanacho leave Manchester City – Guardiola ••
Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola, has revealed that Kelechi Iheanacho is on the verge of leaving the club.
The Super Eagles forward has fallen down the pecking order under Guardiola and has been linked with several Premier League clubs.
“Kelechi is a young player. As a manager it is an honour to work with him. It was not easy for him, I didn’t give a lot of chances,” Guardiola is quoted as saying by Manchester Evening News on Wednesday.
“He decided to stay in Manchester (instead of going on tour) and maybe next week he will finish.
“We have an option to take him back. We believe he deserves to play at that age. That’s why we decided what’s best.”
Iheanacho played 20 Premier League games in the 2016/2017 season and scored four league goals.
