Kelechi Iheanacho Welcomes Strike Rival Gabriel Jesus To Manchester City

jesus-and-iheanachoSuper Eagles forward Kelechi Iheanacho has claimed that he is looking forward to playing alongside new Manchester City recruit Gabriel Jesus.

Jesus arrived in Manchester on Tuesday to begin his City career having signed for the club for a fee of £27million in the summer.

Nigeria star Iheanacho is behind Sergio Aguero in the strilers pecking order at City and he could drop further down with the addition of Jesus.

Iheanacho however believes the Brazilian will bolster the City squad in 2017.

“I’m going to be happy to see him playing with us,” Iheanacho said in an interview with Manchester Evening News.

“He’s a great kid, he’s a great striker, and he has great qualities.”

“What we need is to help our club. We need everybody, both the people coming in and the people here, to carry the team along.

“It’s a collective effort. It’s not a one-man show, we need everybody around. He is my team-mate now so we see him as one.

“The manager needs to bring his players to help us achieve our dreams this season.”
