Kelechi Iheanacho wants £150,000 a week from Manchester City! The Nigerian and Manchester City striker is reportedly demanding for £150,000 a week after a successful season of scoring goals for the Sky Blues Citizens team of Manchester.If this report is true,then this is exactly what is wrong with football and society in general today.In fairness,i doubt if this is totally Kelechi's doing.It's those greedy agents behind the scenes who keep pushing these young men into the wrong decisions just so they can make more money for themselves with little thought about the players long term career.
Kelechi Iheanacho weekly salary.Yes,the teenage striker has scored more goals for the Blues this season than last summer's £49m buy Raheem Sterling and £28m 2014 signing Wilfried Bony.But those two players have done their time.They didn't demand mega money for themselves after one season in the English premier league.
Raheem Sterling was a sensation for Liverpool for close to three years.He has done it on the international scene for England.He has been to the world cup.Bony on his path single handedly kept Swansea City Fc in the premiership and has played in many big games for Ivory Coast as also at the world cup
So Kelechi Iheanacho and his advisers can't say just cos he has had a decent first season(in which he is not even a first teamer)he wants to be on the same salary as Bony and Sterling and earn £150,000 a week.Absolutely ridiculous!He should be looking to playing next season as a first team regular and bettering his record of this season.Then he can ask for the world and be given it.
If at 19,you are already worried and concerned about money £150,000 a week when you should be concerned more about being the best you could be,its a very worrying thought.
