Derby Winner Dream Come True – Iheanacho

| Leave a comment

Manchester City striker Kelechi Iheanacho has described his derby winner against Manchester United as a “dream come true”.

The Nigerian netted City’s second at Old Trafford in a 2-1 win, doubling the lead given to the visitors by Kevin De Bruyne, before Zlatan Ibrahimovic brought United back into the game on the stroke of half-time.

Iheanacho was only handed a start due to the suspension of Sergio Aguero, but he took his opportunity and was delighted to help Pep Guardiola’s side to victory against their local rivals.

“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.”
