Manchester City-owned forward makes La Liga Team of the Week

Manchester City-owned Olarenwaju ‘Larry’ Kayode has been named in the latest La Liga Team of the Week at popular statistics-driven website WhoScored.

The 24-year-old is on loan at City Football Group partner club Girona FC, where he was dispatched immediately after joining Man City from Austria Wien in the summer for around £3.5million.

A Nigerian international, Kayode has been mostly used as a substitute so far, but enjoyed his first full 90 minutes last night as Girona beat fellow strugglers Deportivo La Coruna away from home, a win that moved the Catalan club up to 15th place.

Kayode assisted the winning goal, scored by Portu, in what was a good all-round performance. Fellow City loanees Aleix García, Pablo Maffeo and Douglas Luiz also featured in the win.

For Kayode, an impressive showing against the Galician side will hopefully lead to more minutes. He is still looking for his first goal at Girona after finishing top scorer in the Austrian Bundesliga last season.

Larry’s display yesterday means he partners Lionel Messi up front on the latest WhoScored Team of the Week for La Liga:
