Manchester City striker Kelechi Iheanacho has admitted that Chelsea legend Didier Drogba and Manchester United’s Wayne Rooney are his idols. The 20-year-old has four goals and three assists in 440 minutes of Premier League action this season, and has grown in to a capable back-up for usual centre-forward Sergio Aguero.

It appears that two top-flight legends have helped the youngster to make this fast rise through the ranks, neither of whom came from his current club.

‘I think I was watching Didier Drogba and his team at Chelsea, and Wayne Rooney at Manchester United as well,’ the Nigeria international told the Premier League’s official account.

‘They are both players that I am looking up to as well, but to pick it up and put in my football as well in the Premier League.’

Drogba scored 164 goals in 381 appearances over two spells with the Blues, helping them to win four Premier League titles, three League Cups, four FA Cups, and the Champions League.
