Iheanacho stated this to British Sunday Express in an interview where he disclosed that the Citizen’s boss makes the duo’s video clips available for him to aide his development

His word: “Of course Guardiola tells me about them, that I should really watch them and see what they are doing and make sure I am improving on what I am not doing.

“They are great strikers, big stars so you need to see how you can improve your game, to work in training.

“They both have great qualities and they have a lot of different abilities.

“It’s important of course that you be yourself, you are your own player, you have your own style but of course you need to see what they are doing too.

“I watch all of their games. They are great players and I need to watch them to improve. They have great qualities and you need to see what they are doing. Everyone’s quality is different but you have to take some things they are doing and put it in your game and work on it.”
