The former Ivorian captain scored 164 goals in 381 appearances over two spells at Stamford Bridge, helping the Blues to win four Premier League titles, three League Cups, four FA Cups, and the Champions League.

Meanwhile the England and Manchester United captain has five EPL titles, one FA Cup, two League Cups, one UEFA Champions League and one FIFA Club World Cup title in his trophy cabinet.

Rooney, just recently, got into Manchester United record books by equaling Sir Bobby Charlton’s all-time goals tally of 249 for the club.

20-year-old Iheanacho told that he hopes to learn from them in order to become a better player in the league.

He said, “I think I was watching Didier Drogba and his team at Chelsea, and Wayne Rooney at Manchester United as well.

“They are both players that I am looking up to as well, pick up lessons from them and put in my football as well in the Premier League.”

Iheanacho has scored four goals and has provided three assists in 440 minutes of league action this season.
