Yaya Toure of Manchester City embarrassed teammate Kelechi Iheanacho after a mix-up at the end of their win over Hull City.
Yaya Toure was named man of the match after City’s win over Hull. There had been an all-action display which culminated in him scoring the first, and decisive, goal from the penalty spot.
Iheanacho, was also invited to give his post-match thoughts, and both men seemed to be giving the TV cameras the sort of platitudes expected after a hard-fought, but expected, Premier League win.
Toure, was handed the award. Oh nice, thank you very much, I will give it to my boy then,’ said the Ivorian midfielder. He meant his son.
Iheanacho, however, had presumably not been listening to the heart-warming tale of Toure Jnr telling his father he was destined to score a Boxing Day goal, and assumed that ‘my boy’ was simply a term of endearment for Toure Snr’s Nigerian team-mate.
The striker reached out to take the award he thought he was being given, only for Yaya to start laughing, slap his hand away and say: ‘No, it’s not you, my boy!’.
