Iheanacho Enjoys Rashford Comparison, Happy With “Great Season”

Manchester City youngster Kelechi Iheanacho has described his debut season in the English Premier League as a successful one while he is happy to be compared with Manchester United's Marcus Rashford.

Nigeria forward Iheanacho broke into City's first team after impressing during pre-season.

The 19-year-old has gone on to score 13 goals in 34 games in all competitions and also has a Capital One Cup medal this season.

"So much has happened in the last few years it is difficult to take in. If you start thinking about being here one moment and there the next, your brain would get overload and your head would be spinning so it's best not to think about it too much," Iheanacho told the Manchester City official website.

"Whatever happens now it has been a great season for me. I couldn't have imagined what has happened so far so I'm really happy.

"The other lads are always talking to me, offering advice and helping me – whether in training or in games – and I listen to everything they say.

"Like any striker I love scoring goals and I'm not really fussed how they go into the net as long as they do.

"I just take the chances as they come. It's just about being in the right place at the right time and when the chance comes your way you have to be able to take it."

The 2013 U-17 World Cup Most Valuable Player went on to state that he is always motivated to do more when compared with Manchester United's Marcus Rashford.

"I love a challenge so when people compare me and Rashford, it gives me more confidence and motivation. It also makes me work even harder," Iheanacho added.

"I hope people keep comparing us because if we can keep challenging each other in the coming years it could be great for Manchester. If we both keep doing well, improving and scoring lots of goals for the team it could be interesting.

"Rashford is a great young talent. He is big and strong and makes good decisions so I think he's going to be a really good player for United in the coming years.

"You can learn from every player so I've learned from Rashford as well this season and I wish him all the best in his career.

"Like all young players coming through for their clubs in this country, I hope they do well and continue to do well. Nobody knows what will happen in the future though.

"I don't know anyone who is playing who doesn't want to keep improving and be at the top level. I don't know if I'll end up being a top player or not.

"But I'll be working hard to achieve that and I wouldn't complain if it happened. I just have to keep going and see where it takes me."
