Nigeria legend Jay-Jay Okocha says Kelechi Iheanacho quitting Manchester City was the right decision.
The Nigeria striker is set to join Leicester City.
“He has come of that age when he needs regular first-team games,” said former Bolton star Okocha, widely regarded as one of the best Nigerian players of all time.
“It will be a better decision for him to go somewhere where he can play week in, week out. I think it’s a great decision for him to move out of Manchester City this season.
“You never know (if he can be a 20-goal striker) until he starts playing regularly,” Okocha told ESPN. “That’s every player’s dream, to be a starter. Hopefully, he will be able to show he has what it takes to be a starter in any team.”
