Kelechi Iheanacho: I Wanted To Join FC Porto Not Manchester City


Nigeria international Kelechi Iheanacho says he preferred Portuguese giants FC Porto over English side Manchester City.
The 20-year-old striker joined City’s Academy from Taye Academy on 10 January 2014 and he has since revealed that his father convinced him to join the English side.

”After the tournament, a few European clubs were interested in signing me: Arsenal, Porto and some others,” Iheanacho told Theplayerstribune

“And also, of course, Manchester City. I did not know much about these clubs”,
“I thought I would choose Porto, because I knew many African players had success with the club in the past,” he continued.

“I didn’t really believe that I could play at City because they had so many incredible players.

“But my father told me that I should choose City because he believed that I could achieve great things there,”he added.
“So I listened to my father.”
