Manchester City’s teenage forward Kelechi Iheanacho believes that they are well on track to win trophies in this 2015/16 campaign.
The 19-year-old attacker netted his fifth goal in all major competitions during Citizens’ 3-0 victory over Norwich City in the FA Cup third round clash at Carrow Road on Saturday.
When speaking to ESPN FC Iheanacho indicated that the English Premier League (EPL) side stand a good chance of winning some of the four major competitions they are still competing in.
“I think we’re going to go far this season and we’re going to get something. We’re going to get trophies this season because we have the players to get it and the manager. We pray we don’t have any injuries and if we don’t get any we will win trophies,” Iheanacho said.
The Nigerian international warned that they can prove their critics wrong by going all the way in the 2015/16 UEFA Champions League. The English Premier League (EPL) side will take on Ukrainian outfit Dynamo Kyiv in the Round of 16 in February and March this year.
“We can compare [to the biggest sides in Europe] if we really put our
mind in that and say to them ‘we can do it in Europe. We can prove to the [critics] we can achieve something in Europe. They are just players like us,” he continued.
“European football is the same as any other football. We just have to keep working hard, believe in ourselves and believe in our team-mates,” the Man City academy product concluded.
Manuel Pellegrini’s side will host Everton in the 2015/16 Capital One semi-final second-leg clash at the end of this month. Everton won 2-1 in the first-leg.
In the EPL, City are placed third in the standings just three points behind log leaders Arsenal, who are on 42 points. The Citizens will face Everton again in a league game at home on Wednesday.
