Seko Fofana only left Manchester City on a permanent basis in 2016, but he’s made it clear the club continues to occupy his thoughts.

Moving in 2013 from Lorient, the now 23 year old wasn’t able to force his way through at City and loans to Fulham and Bastia followed.

Those were good temporary moves and Fofana got the time on the pitch his progression needed. His career is on an upward curve, and Gazzetta dello Sport have a chat with the midfielder.

The Italian newspaper put it to Fofana that he’s having a great start to the season with Udinese, and that they’ve named him Man of the Match three times already.

“It’s the year of change. I am ambitious, I have goals, I dream of a great career. I’m playing as in the first year, as I did until I broke the fibula in March 2017 against Juventus. It was the most difficult moment in terms of football.”

Gazzetta then asked which club occupies his thought, and despite being a PSG fan, Fofana said: “I tell you Manchester City. I’ve been there and I have it in my head. One day I would like to play the European cups. I met Yaya Tourè, my model. He was a myth, now he is a friend.”

It would be a big ask for Fofana to make it back and succeed at Manchester City but he clearly has such an ambition and despite giving his all for Udinese right now, the dream of bigger things is there.
