Manchester City full-back, Pablo Zabaleta has urged Kelechi Iheanacho to show Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola, that he can be relied on in attack as Sergio Aguero begins his lengthy suspension, reports Completesportsnigeria.com.
Aguero's nasty tackle on Chelsea's David Luiz during Saturday's 3-1 Premier League defeat landed City's top scorer with a four-match ban, ruling him out until the New Year's Eve trip to Liverpool.
Aguero's absence will however see Iheanacho lead the Manchester City's attack line, and Zabaleta opines that the 20 year old must take his chance.
"It was a good chance for Kelechi to play. We know Sergio will miss the next four games, and I think he is ready," Zabaleta told the BBC.
"He played well. He scored a great goal and he must be ready for the next few games because probably the manager will need him more than ever.
"Aguero is suspended so it is time for him to take that chance."
