Iheanacho: Scoring In Derby, Dream Come True

share on:

Manchester City striker, Kelechi Iheanacho has described scoring in the derby as a dream come true.

The young Nigerian scored the second goal after De Bruyne opened the scoring. And just before Ibrahimovic pulled one back for United.

Iheanacho was handed a starting position in the match, due to the suspension of Aguero and he showcased his talent.

“It is a dream come true to play in the Manchester derby and to get a winning goal,” he told Sky Sports. “I’m happy, I’m very happy, for my team, for everyone. They really worked hard to get the victory today.”

Iheanacho slotted home after a shot from De Bruyne rebounded off the post and straight to his feet, and he admitted there was some good fortune involved.

“It was about being in the right place at the right time,” he added. “I didn’t expect the shot, I didn’t expect it to hit the post and come back, but I’m happy to be in the right place and to score.”
