Iheanacho gives reason for being a bench warmer


Kelechi Iheanacho has explained that the reason behind his being on the bench was because Pep Guardiola has the right to rotate the squad, so everyone gets game time.

The Super Eagles forward also insisted he is not thinking of leaving the Etihad club this summer.
Iheanacho has fallen down the pecking order, with Guardiola preferring Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus in attack.
The 20-year-old has been linked with a move to West Ham, but says he will stay put in Manchester.
Asked by BBC World Football podcast if he will be at City next season, he replied: “Definitely I don’t know about that news [regarding a move].
 'All I know is that I’m still at Manchester City, I’m still a Manchester City player so all the news that’s going on about teams wanting to buy me, I try not to know about that.
'People will go on holiday and we will see. It’s not only me that hasn’t been playing, there are other players.
'The manager rotates the players and squad so that everyone gets game time. So I shouldn’t be complaining that I’m not getting games.
'We are one squad and we are a full squad so everyone is not going to be playing at the same time.”
