[TR Sport] Iheanacho makes City’s Champions League squad, Toure out

share on:


Pep Guardiola has included Nigeria youngster, Kelechi Iheanacho, in the Manchester City squad for the Champions League group stages, Sky Sports reports.

But the Spaniard left out Ivorian Yaya Toure out of the squad.

Toure, whose agent told Sky SportsNews HQ that the 33-year-old Ivory Coast midfielder intends to stay and fight for his place at City, is yet to feature in any of Guardiola’s squads for their opening three Premier League games.

Joe Hart’s loan move to Torino meant City were unable to fill the eight homegrown spots required by UEFA as part of their 25-man squad, and as a result they have named only 21 players with Toure missing out.

City qualified for the group stages after coming through a play-off tie against Steaua Bucharest, where Toure played in the 1-0 second leg win at the Etihad Stadium.

Guardiola had played down Toure’s absence from the 18-man squad selected for the first leg of the tie, suggesting it was because he preferred Toure to go through further training.

City were drawn in Group C alongside Toure and Guardiola’s former club Barcelona, Borussia Monchengladbach and Celtic, where Toure’s brother Kolo plays.

Full Manchester City Champions League squad for 2016/2017 group stages:

Claudio Bravo, Willy Caballero; Bacary Sagna, Vincent Kompany, Pablo Zabaleta, Aleksandar Kolarov, Gael Clichy, John Stones, Nicolas Otamendi; Fernando, Raheem Sterling, Ilkay Gundogan, Jesus Navas, Kevin De Bruyne, Fabian Delph, Leroy Sane, David Silva, Fernandinho; Nolito, Sergio Aguero, Kelechi Iheanacho.
