Manchester City captain, Vincent Kompany, has urged Kelechi Iheanacho to score more goals for the Premier League leaders.
Iheanacho scored his first senior City goal after coming on as a late substitute to give Manchester City a 1-0 win over Crystal Palace on Saturday.
According to the club’s official website, Kompany described Iheanacho’s emergence as an achievement for City.
“You tell me about him! He’s the mystery man,” Kompany said.
“He’s had a really good pre-season – even when he didn’t play well he scored.
“At the moment it looks like he’s third in the pecking order, and at his young age and at this kind of club, it’s a massive achievement already.
“So for him to score I can only hope that he’s going to score even more for us. It’s great for the club to have a young player coming through.”
Iheanacho made his league debut for City in their 2-0 win against Watford at the Etihad weeks back.Watch The Premier League Live!! with EXPRESSVPN the #1 Trusted Name in VPN
