Two members of the Manchester City youth team, Kelechi Iheanacho and Chidiebere Nwakali, have expressed sadness at the recent slump of the Citizens in the Barclays English Premier League.
Iheanacho and Nwakali both impressed with Nigeria’s under-17s at the 2013 Fifa World Cup in the United Arab Emirates and were duly snapped up by City.
A 2-3 defeat at Liverpool was followed by a 2-2 draw at home to Sunderland to all but sound the death knell on City’s title charge this season and the two Nigerian youngsters have expressed sadness at the situation.
“I have to feel bad (at the recent bad results) because it’s my team. I however know that if the league title is destined to be won by Man City, we will certainly win it,” Iheanacho said.
Nwakali also spoke about City’s recent poor run of results, noting that he had been confident all along that the title was headed to the Etihad Stadium.
