Iheanacho Praises “Brilliant” De Bruyne After Bournemouth Rout

By Johnny Edward:


Manchester City striker Kelechi Iheanacho was full of praise for his teammate Kevin De Bruyne who was influential in the side's 4-0 thumping of Bournemouth at Etihad Stadium on Saturday, reports Completesportsnigeria.com.


The Belgian playmaker who opened scoring in last weekend's Manchester derby against Manchester United again shot the Citizens into the lead in the 15th minute before the lead was doubled by Iheanacho ten minutes later.


The 19-year-old Nigerian also bared his thoughts on Nolito's marching orders late on for an attempted head-butt on Adam Smith.


Iheanacho told reporters after the game: "Kevin De Bruyne is a brilliant player. He is very intelligent. He has good qualities. We are happy to have him in our team. 


"We are happy when we win a game, but we need to focus on winning the next game. When I go out before the game, I have confidence that we are going to win.


"I thought the referee took the right decision (on Nolito). That's the game."
