Manchester City manager, Manuel Pellegrini has hinted at the possibility of starting Flying Eagles forward, Kelechi Iheanacho in his side’s Capital One game Crystal Palace on Wednesday.
The 2013 FIFA U17 most valuable player at the United Arab Emirate came from the bench to score his first premier league goal ealier this season, which apparently won his side the game in that encounter.
Pellegrini said that the team has a mandate of encouraging players from the academy by giving them adequate chance to prove themselves in the main team.
“We’ll see tomorrow if Kelechi will start,” Pellegrini told reporters at his pre-match press conference.
“As a manager, it’s important for every club to always buy good players and then to work to develop young players who can arrive into the first-team.
“For our club it’s important to bring young players from the academy to the first-team.
“It’s not just a case of using young players if you don’t think they have a future with the club.”
On City’s injury situation, Pellegrini added: “The injury list is exactly the same as the last game – Clichy, Delph, Nasri, Aguero and Silva.
Pellegrini handed debuts to youngsters Patrick Roberts, George Evans and Manu Garcia from the bench as City breezed past Sunderland 4-1 in the previous round.
But the strength of the starting line-up named at the Stadium of Light underlined the Chilean’s commitment to regaining a trophy he won during his first season in England.
“The Capital One Cup an important competition for the club,” he continued.
