Iheanacho targets FA Cup glory with City

Super Eagles forward, Kelechi Iheanacho, has set his sights on helping Manchester City win the FA Cup this season.

The Citizens are currently ten points behind premier league leaders, Chelsea and winning the UEFA Champions League looks a long shot for Pep Guardiola’s men due to their not too impressive form this season.

However, Iheanacho feels that the most realistic target for a trophy this season is the FA Cup and on Saturday they play Middlesbrough in the quarter-finaland the Nigerian is fired up already.

“It is a big game on Saturday against Middlesbrough,”he said.

“It is a final for us to play. We have to go there to playthe good football that we can do and we hope to get the win that we need so we have got a trip to Wembley for the semi-finals.

“Can we win it? There are strong teams in the FA Cup,of course Chelsea and Manchester United play each other.

“But we need to keep working hard and believe in ourselves and of course, if we work hard, we are going to win.”

Iheanacho is likely to start against Middlesbrough as Manchester City will be involved in the UEFA Champions League round of 16 second leg showdown against Monaco next week Tuesday and Guardiola may decide to rest Sergio Aguero for the match.
