Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola has praised Leicester City and Super Eagles of Nigeria stars Kelechi Iheanacho and Wilfred Ndidi as his side is set to take on the Foxes at King Power Stadium on Saturday, April 3.

Iheanacho has been in terrific form for Leicester recently, scoring seven goals in his last four games, including a hat-trick against Sheffield United which earned him the premier league player of the month award for March.

By winning the Premier League Player of the Month for March, Iheanacho becane the fourth Nigerian to clinch the individual accolade after Jay-Jay Okocha, Peter Odemwingie and Odion Ighalo.

Guardiola, who needs to win against Leicester City to cement his side’s chances of winning the premier league has praised the impact of his former player Iheanacho while revealing that he was allowed to leave Manchester City in 2017 to enable him to secure more playing time.

“Incredible. The quality was there, he was a young player here and I believe, at that moment with Gabriel and Sergio we didn’t have much space,” Guardiola said in a pre-match press conference.

“He is a fantastic person, we had a good relationship, and I’m delighted it’s going well lately. He’s playing for the injured Maddison and he links really well with the midfield.

“He’s good in behind, he’s fast and in the final third he has the right tempo, he is so clear in front of the goal.”

Guardiola also added that he is wary of Brendan Rodgers star player Wilfred Ndidi, who he described as a quality player.

“You see all the players, they have quality. Ndidi is going well, [Youri] Tielemans is a top-class player,” he added.

Iheanacho has made 28 appearances across all competitions for the Foxes this season, scoring 12 goals and providing five assists.

Manchester City are 14 points clear on the Premier League table and victory over Leicester at King Power Stadium will see them further increase their lead.
