Head coach of the Nigeria U-17 team Manu Garba says English Premiership side Tottenham Hotspur will regret allowing Nigeria youth International Musa Yahaya leave White Hart Lane.

Shortly after winning the U-17 World cup with Nigeria in 2013, Yahaya was signed on a pre contract by the London based side and spent time training at the club with their youth team.

However days after his contract was turned into a professional one, on his 18 year birthday he was loaned to Portuguese second division side Portimonense and after a fairly successful time on loan he was sold to the club.

Portimonense traded the quick,skillfull and strong forward to FC Porto this summer and Manu Garba who discovered and nurtured the talent of the 18 year old believes Spurs will regret letting him leave.

” I was shocked when they (Spurs) decided to sell him, you can’t let a young talented player leave just like that, he has all it takes to succeed in England, pace,power and finishing, they will definitely regret letting him leave” He told Owngoalnigeria.com.

” He is one player who can do just what Kelechi Iheanacho is doing for Manchester City and am so sure he will be back in England, a better player than when he left”.
