Mancity Stops Iheanacho From Rio Olympics




Kelechi Iheanacho will not compete in the
Olympics - despite Nigeria announcing that he is
part of their provisional squad.
Manchester City have already informed the
Nigerian Football Federation that their teenage
striker will not be allowed to compete in Rio - and
have even had a letter acknowledging their
decision.



Despite that,
the NFF still
named the
19-year-old in
their 35-man
squad for the
Games. It is
understood
City have no
intention of
going back on
their initial
decision,
which was
exclusively
revealed by MEN Sport this week.
They are under no obligation to make Iheanacho
available and have already spoken to him about
the issue.



City want the striker to be available for incoming
manager Pep Guardiola's first pre-season at the
club. Iheanacho enjoyed an outstanding
breakthrough season at the Etihad and is set to
be handed more first team opportunities under
the new manager.
With Wilfried Bony expected to leave the club, he
looks set to be elevated to Sergio Aguero's
understudy.



City's summer preparations will already be
impacted by players returning late from Euro
2016 and the Copa America, such as Aguero,
Nicolas Otamendi, Raheem Sterling, Kevin de
Bruyne and David Silva.
