The young Nigerian has emerged as a young star since he was handed a work permit earlier this year and is tipped to break into the first-team next season.
Despite playing for the youth team just a day earlier, Iheanacho would be willing to play for City against Southampton in the final game of the campaign on Sunday.
He told the Manchester Evening News, “I don't know [if i'll be involved]. I play for City. If they tell me to come and play for the first team I will come and play. I'll change my flight.”
Iheanacho owed his match-winning display in the second half comeback against United to Patrick Vieira, who delivered an inspirational team talk at half time.
He continued, “In the first half I was so nervous to play and I lost many balls. It was a big game against United, my first game against them.
“But when I went in the dressing room at half-time the coach told me to work harder and be stronger, forget everything and concentrate. So in the second half it was a lot better.”
It caps a rollercoaster year for Iheanacho, who struggled to gain a work permit for the majority of the campaign after City brought him in last summer.
The Nigerian has a big future. He is a very quick and lively striker, who can beat a man with ease and possesses a clinical finish.
Iheanacho deserves a chance in the first-team next year and if City are to prove to people that they want to create a pathway from the youth team to the senior set-up, the 18-year-old should be at the forefront of Pellegrini’s thinking for next season.
