Despite impressing for Manchester City’s academy before going out on a succession of loan spells, youngster Thierry Ambrose has hinted at his frustration over his lack of opportunities at the club.
Ambrose has never been given a chance in the City first team, going out on loan in each of the last three seasons.
Before his most recent temporary move to FC Metz, the forward spent time donning the colours of RC Lens and NAC Breda, scoring 10 goals in 30 appearances for the latter, as per TransferMarkt.
However, despite showing glimpses of star potential, Ambrose may be on his way out the exit door after admitting to the possibility that there may not be an opportunity for him at City.
The 22-year-old even suggested that unless City can offer him his first bites at senior football for the club, he will ‘call it a day’ after his current deal expires in the summer of 2020.
Speaking to Manchester Evening News, Ambrose said: “I will definitely call it a day with these loan spells in the summer.
“I know I said the same thing last year and then I went on loan again but sometimes it does not always depend on me.
“Of course it would be a regret to leave without playing for the first team. I’ve always set my sights on playing at the Etihad Stadium, but that’s life. I will always keep working hard and hope that I can return to Manchester City one day.”
Indeed, with the striker still being at a fairly young age, who knows what might happen? But there is little arguing that he needs stability and first-team football in order to accelerate his development, something he just isn’t going to get behind such talented attacking players in Manchester.
