Nigerian teen sensation Kelechi Iheanacho has boasted that there is more to come from him following his hat-trick against Aston Villa in the fourth round of the FA Cup.
The 19-year-old was voted man-of-the-match after scoring a hat-trick and assitsing Raheem Sterling for the fourth goal as the Citizens demolished their host by 4-0.
The former Under-17 star who broke into Manchester City’s first team this season took advantage of the absence of key regulars Sergio Aguero, David Silva, and Yaya Toure. His calmness in front of goal would have gladen even the hearts of national team bosses who will be monitoring from Africa as he destroys defences in England.
“I am so happy to score today, ” Hat-trick hero Iheanacho told Skysports. “It is my first hat-trick and I am hopeful of more to come. I took my time to score the third goal.
“I waited for the goalkeeper to see where he went. It is a great feeling when the fans chant my name and I am grateful they came to support us.”
Iheanacho will hope to make the starting line-up again on Tuesday when Manchester City travel to face relegation threatened Sunderland in a premier league fixture.
