Kelechi Iheanacho scared plenty of Manchester City fans when he sustained an injury during the Champions League match against Steaua Bucharest. What was especially scary was when the young striker seemed to black out for a while, rolling his eyes and even causing a Steaua defender to be concerned and try to help.

Turns out Kelechi is fine. He said so himself with an Instagram post, but there's further confirmation from his father that he player is injured, but will not miss too much time.

Iheanacho Sr. says that Kelechi has been told to rest for the next two weeks. Pep Guardiola will probably give more updates on the player's condition, but he's most likely to miss Sunday's Premier League match against West Ham, rest and recover from his hamstring issue during the international break, and then be healthy for the Manchester Derby against Man United in three weeks.

Glad to see you're okay, Kelechi. Don't scare us like that.
