I’m Not Ready for Manchester City Move Yet – Anderlecht Defender Plays Down Talk

Friday, 9th March, 2012

Anderlecht defender Cheikhou Kouyate has expressed surprise at news that Manchester City are taking a keen interest in his services.

Indeed, despite an impressive season so far for the 22-year-old, Kouyate believes that it is too soon in his career for a switch to Eastlands to be possible or even desirable.

"I’m not ready yet to join a club like Manchester City", said the defender.

"I’ll probably be ready within a year or two."

Kouyate has sought to model his game on that of Manchester City star Vincent Kompany – and does not feel ready to be able to do the Belgian justice if he were called upon to partner him in the centre of Roberto Mancini’s defence.

"There’s a big gap between me and the players at City at the moment, like [Joleon] Lescott and Kompany."

The Senegal man has also taken close note of his former team-mate Romelu Lukaku, who swapped Anderlecht for a move to another Premier League club, in the shape of Chelsea, last summer, but has ended up merely warming the bench at Stamford Bridge.

Despite Kouyate being very much open to playing for the Citizens, he is biding his time and remains determined to develop at Anderlecht first, with Champions League football at the Jupiler League outfit hopefully on the agenda for next season.
