Manchester City Lonee Yaw Yeboah Opens up About Life at FC Twente

Yeboah has made a big impression in the Eredivisie becoming the 5th best dribbler according to Opta Sports’ Dutch soccer coverage. He has a success rate of 3.12 and has scored two goals and assisted five in 16 appearances.

Together with his fellow loanees from Manchester City – Bersant Celina and Enes Unal, the trio has scored 17 of the club’s 27 goals this season. “We started the season really well- the fans are happy, the club is happy, we are happy,” Yeboah told M.E.N Sport. “We are still in the same mood. Everything is going really well: the football, developing friendships with the people here, reacting to the fans and having a great time.

The loan at FC Twente makes it Yeboah’s second loan spell while at City, having spent last season on loan at Lillie. And although the Ghanaian made five appearances with Les Dogues, he says he was taught “how to play men’s football.”

The Ghanaian was brought up in a family of 10 and central to his upbringing was the influence of his father who is a pastor. Yeboah admits that religion remains a key part of his life as it teaches him how to be humble. The youngster was snapped up by City in 2014 from Right to Dream academy, Ghana.

The 19-year-old hopes to one day get a chance to play in the first team after witnessing youngsters get minutes under Pep Guardiola. “I have seen some players that I was playing with in the youth team being given the chance to play in the fist team and I think it’s fantastic, “he beams. “It depends on how ready you are. You just have to get yourself ready and when your time comes, you take your chance.”
