Super Eagles striker, Kelechi Iheanacho, has said Manchester City will do well to secure a UEFA Champions League spot as a parting gift for outgoing manager, Manuel Pellegrini.

Pellegrini is leaving The Etihad after three years and he will be replaced by Bayern Munich boss, Pep Guardiola, africanFootball.com reports.

The Chilean coach helped City achieve its best-ever finish in the Champions League this season when the club reached the semi-finals and Iheanacho said the team will fight to beat off the last-day challenge of rivals Manchester United to return to the competition next season.

Manchester City, on 65 points, needs only a draw at Swansea City to pip United, who host Bournemouth, to the remaining Champions League place on Sunday.

“Manchester City is a big team who belong to the Champions League,” africanFootball.com quoted Iheanacho as saying in a television interview.
