bring many things to this team,’ Iheanacho added.
“I can play
number 9, 10, 7 and 11 as well so I don’t have any… I can play different
positions. Anywhere I can fit in, I will play.
“I am happy with
what I did last season and now I have to work really hard this season to
get something for the team and work for the team as well.’
