Iheanacho Is Better Than Gabriel Jesus–Ugbade

By Ikenga Chronicles February 11, 2017

Former Nigeria defender and ex-assistant coach of the Nigeria U-17 World Cup winning team, Nduka Ugbade has argued that Kelechi Iheanacho is a better player than Gabriel Jesus at Manchester City. Ugbade made this claim when he spoke to Completesportsnigeria.com while reacting to  the relegation of the Nigerian youth sensation to just a squad player .

The former Nigerian defender who gave his reasons for his claim, said Iheanacho has scored better goals than what Jesus has done for the Citizens.

He added that‎ the Super Eagles player  has the potential to become a big player with time, if he gets playing time t‎o develop his game.

“I don’t think Iheanacho was justly dropped from recent match day squad because of poor form, but because coach Pep Guardiola does not like the young Nigerian. I don’t think Gabriel Jesus who is the rave in Manchester now is better than Iheanacho,” the former Reno Stars coach told Completesportsnigeria.com .

“What Gabriel is doing now for Man City–scoring goals– has been done previously by Iheanacho. Given equal opportunity, the young Nigerian is a better player and I strongly believe that he will get better.”

Asked if it will be wise for Iheanacho to change club and have more playing time, Ugbade advises;

“I want Kelechi to fight for his place in the team to the end of the season after and see if the situation will remain unchanged.”
