Manchester City’s player, Kelechi Iheanacho has said he is not allowing recent praises get into his head.
The Super Eagles forward has attracted lots of praise from fans and pundits alike, as Pep Guardiola’s team maintain a perfect beginning in the new season.
Iheanacho has found himself deputizing for Sergio Aguero throughout the Argentine’s three-match ban and has become 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 lots to learn in this game,” Iheanacho told BBC Sport.
“It’s been a really progressive period for me at the club, but playing alongside stars like Sergio Aguero, Yaya Toure, other good players provides an enormous chance to keep working hard.
“I’m undoubtedly learning, quietly listening and watching others closely on a daily basis; i know in doing that i will attain bigger things in my career.
“We have skilled players in the team and as someone who is learning and improving, i am glad to take my chance when the manager calls,” he added.
“Our manager has confidence in me and has been encouraging me.
“All i would like to do right now is to keep learning under him and work effortlessly 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 midfielders and defenders supply the passes and support for me to deliver, so it is a collective effort.”
