My father made me snub Manchester United — Iheanacho

Kelechi Iheanacho has revealed how his father convinced him to join Manchester City.

Iheanacho back then was one of the most sort after youngsters, when he led Nigeria to the FIFA U17 World Cup glory in 2013.

He won the golden ball and boot at the tournament, leaving big clubs like Manchester United, Wolfsburg, Tottenham and Manchester City scrambling for his signature.

After long negotiations and talks, Man City finally won the race.

“After the U-17 World Cup, I was looking at going to other teams in Europe,” He told Leicester City official website.

“But when they said I was going to Manchester City, I was surprised and saying, ‘How can I go there to that massive team? Am I going to play?’ I said that I wouldn’t go and that they should take me to a smaller team.

“However, my father said to me that it doesn’t matter where I go, I know how to play football and that I will get through there. So, I believed in him, he blessed me and I went to Man City.”

Iheanacho later left Manchester City for Leicester City after two seasons following the arrival of Pep Guardiola.
