Former Manchester United forward, Andy Cole, has tipped Nigerian youngster Kelechi Iheanacho to be one of the great stars of the game in future, reports Completesportsnigeria.com.
Iheanacho who broke into limelight following his impressive display for the Nigerian side that won the FIFA U-17 World Cup in the United Arab Emirates in 2013 made a huge impression under Manuel Pellegrini last season, scoring 14 goals in all competitions.
The former England international reckoned that the 19- year-old alongside Manchester United's young striker Marcus Rashford will make a big mark in future.
"They are both young players starting out in their careers," Cole told 888sport.
"Though they are different in so many ways they have both forced their way into their teams by scoring goals.
