Former Super Eagles Captain, Kanu Nwankwo has said that Alex Iwobi of Arsenal and Kelechi Iheanacho of Manchester City are the shining lights of Nigerian football and wants the players to be managed well.

Kanu, who has predicted that the good old days of Nigerian football will return with the next one to two years, also advised Iwobi and Iheanacho not to rest on their oars and continue to work very hard until they become world stars.

Kanu in an exclusive chat with SportingLife expressed his mind on the two players. “Nigeria football is coming back to the glorious days that we used to know. We have young players that are playing well in their clubs. Alex Iwobi is a player I have watched and I see him as someone that is cool headed and he listens to whatever you tell him to do and takes it on board. He works hard too. He’s got the talent and he can do it

“My advice to him is not to be carried away by his current form and the accolades that has been following his impressive performances week in week out in the English Premiership. He is just starting. If he can keep it up and also double up his efforts he is going to reach where we want him to reach and he is going to be a good product for the country.

“Kelechi Iheanacho is doing very well too. Whenever he comes in or starts for his club Manchester City or the Super Eagles he keeps scoring goals which a good striker is known for. With what I have seen from these boys, I think the national team has a future and that is why I said in the next one or two years the Eagles will be there and bounce back to reckoning.

“This, however, depends on how we do as well as manage things in the country. It is left for the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) to package the players and the national team well”, Kanu said.
