Manchester City star Kelechi Iheanacho named Africa's Most Promising Talent
Kelechi Iheanacho has tonight been named Africa’s Most Promising Talent at the CAF Best of 2016 Awards.
The 20-year-old also won this prize in 2013 but another exceptional season for Manchester City and his country, Nigeria.
Kelechi has been handed the award for a second time.
The Manchester City star already has 20 career goals for City despite his young age , and has set an example for other youngsters to follow by making a well deseved breakthrough to the first-team.
With Sergio Agüero ahead of him in the pecking order, Iheanacho has to take his opportunies when they come, and recently scored in the 3-0 win away at Hull.
Kelechi also scored 4 goals in 7 games for Nigeria, he will be looking to build on a great start to his career in the coming years and hopefully some day he will be named African Footballer Of The Year just like his City team-mate Yaya Touré.
