Guardiola will next season manage City having signed for the Premier League club after three years at Bayern Munich.

Kelechi who had his breakthrough year at City last season scoring 14 goals in 35 appearances, is looking forward to working with his new coach.

Manchester City last season had an under-whelming year, winning just the League Cup and finishing fourth in the Premier League under Manuel Pellegrini.

Iheanacho expects City to be better under the Spanish coach.

“We finished fourth last season (in the Premier League) but I think next season will be better especially with the new coach coming in,” the 19-year-old told Manchester City TV.

“I think the new coach will be good things to the team; a new dimension and I can’t wait.”

Iheanacho on Sunday, July 3 met his new club coach, Guardiola during the club’s kit launch.

Although Iheanacho would have probably met him in private, the duo was publicly seen together for the first time on Sunday.

Iheanacho and Guardiola were seen together on stage at 'Cityzens weekend' as the club unveiled their new kit ahead of next season.
