Man City striker Nmecha raps Anderlecht teammates: No more excuses

Manchester City striker Lukas Nmecha was left frustrated after Anderlecht's 1-1 draw with Mechelen.

The on-loan striker has scored 13 of Anderlecht's 40 goals this season and is wanted on a permanent deal by coach Vincent Kompany.

But after yesterday's result, Nmecha didn't hold back: "We just didn't do well enough.

"There were counter chances where it was just a matter of giving the right pass.

"That is indeed a lack of experience.

"Although it is time to stop talking about how young we are. Everyone in our core has the qualities to go far and become a big player. But to take that step we have to become more 'clinical'. Become more decisive. Play more directly and have less doubts. Make choices."
