Super Eagles forward, Kelechi Iheanacho, has admitted he would love to fill the void in Manchester City’s attack, left by Sergio Aguero’s three-match ban.
The Argentine striker was punished retrospectively, for elbowing West Ham defender, Winston Reid, in their Premier League clash before the international break.
Iheanacho, who scored the winner for Nigeria against Tanzania last weekend, says he is ready to step in, if handed the chance by Pep Guardiola.
“Sergio’s suspension is a big loss but we have a lot of big players to turn to,” Iheanacho said as quoted by The UK Sun.
“If I get picked I’m going to do my job. Games like this mean a lot and it doesn’t come bigger than a derby.
“He’s a winner and I believe he will bring success to the club.
“His arrival has changed the mentality of everyone because you are starting from scratch.
“The past means nothing and everyone is fighting hard to get a chance.
“It’s been very good for me. He’s one of the best managers in the world and I am learning a lot from him.”
