Manchester City striker Kelechi Iheanacho says he does not have a difficult relationship with Pep Guardiola.
The 20-year-old Super Eagles star is behind Sergio Aguero in the pecking order and has fallen behind January arrival Gabriel Jesus who was signed for £27million.
The striker was expected to play a big role for the Blues this season but has found appearances hard to come by.
He has not started a game since the beginning of the year, and 11 of his 21 appearances have been off the bench.
But Iheanacho, who has still scored seven goals, said of boss Guardiola: “I’ve got a good relationship with the manager – everyone here has a good relationship with him.
“We are happy to have him here. He will take this club far, because he is a great manager.
“When you are not playing, you need to train harder. You need to keep faith.
"And when you come into the team, you have to do exactly what your team-mates are doing to help the team achieve something.”
Iheanacho last scored for City in their 5 - 1 defeat of Huddersfield.
He has been named in Gernot Rohr's Super Eagles squad to face Senegal and Burkina Faso later this month.
