Manchester City winger Ryotaro Meshino, who is currently on loan at Portugal’s Rio Ave, has expressed his ambition to someday play for his parent club.
The Japanese winger has so far made 13 appearances for the Primera Liga club, scoring three goals in the process.
Although it is becoming increasingly difficult for players in the City Football Group system to break into the Manchester City first team, Meshino still has the desire to become a key player for the fugitive leaders of the Premier League.
In quotes relayed by the Spanish newspaper Mundo Deportivo and translated by sports witness On Thursday morning, the 22-year-old said this:
“I get a message from Manchester City after every game; they make sure everything goes well. I would love to play for Man City at some point, but the offer I got from them is that I would have the club’s support during the loans … “
He went on to say, “I would like to do my best under these circumstances. At the moment, I don’t think of going back to Japan.
“I always wanted to go and play in Europe, and it seemed like the right time. I knew it was my chance to do it ”,
We are unlikely to see Meshino gracing the pitch at Etihad Stadium anytime soon, but the winger will remain hopeful and work hard to one day appear for the Blues.
