Manchester City youngster Kelechi Iheanacho has tipped the club to perform better than they did last season under new boss, Pep Guardiola.
The Citizens finished a disappointing fourth in the Premier League last season but reached the semifinals of the Champions League under Manuel Pellegrini but Iheanacho expects them to be better under Guardiola.
“We finished fourth last season (in the Premier League) but I think next season will be better especially with the new coach coming in,” he told the club’s in house media.
“I think the new coach will be good things to the team; a new dimension and I can’t wait,” he stressed.
The 19-year old had a remarkable outing last term on a personal not, scoring 14 goals in 35 appearances – mostly as a substitute – as he was given a chance by former manager Manuel Pellegrini.
City have since signed Spain international Nolito to them more options in attack going into the new season and it remains unclear if the Nigerian will play a starring role in Guardiola’s debut season at the club and in England.
Iheanacho started last season as City’s third choice striker behind Sergio Aguero and Wilfried Bony, but eventually usurped the latter as the season progressed, and became second choice to Aguero.
