​Kelechi Iheanacho has made a blistering start to his career at Manchester City, and it's clear to see that he's got quite the bright future ahead of him in the Premier League.


The Nigerian has a great eye for goal and has a goals per minute ratio that suggests he's going to be a constant threat at Manchester City when he starts playing every week. If anything, he's become one already.

But speaking to the Premier League on Wednesday, he's revealed that he's learned tricks of the trade by watching two of the division's greatest strikers - and they just so happen to have played for two of City's most fierce and direct rivals.


The first, Didier Drogba, sealed his status as one of the Premier League's greatest by hitting 104 league goals over the course of two spells at Stamford Bridge, but his second choice was a little more out there - he did after all pick Manchester United's own Wayne Rooney.


Rooney currently sits on 194 Premier League goals and will become United's all time record goalscorer the next time he hits the net, but considering he's been a chief tormentor of City in the past, it comes as quite a surprise that he's actually admitted it.

He said: "I was watching Didier Drogba doing his thing at Chelsea, and Wayne Rooney at Manchester United as well.


"They are great players that I'm looking up to, to pick it [lessons from them] up and put them in my football as well in the Premier League."


One wonders just how well this will go down with the City fans he's spent his time winning over...
