Iheanacho: My father made me chose Manchester City over Porto


Nigeria international Kelechi Iheanacho has revealed that he decided to join Manchester City instead of his dream club Porto because of his father.

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.com.

“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.
