Manchester City’s Frank Lampard that the return of Ivory Coast duo Yaya Toure and Wilfried Bony will be a huge boost to the club’s title chase.
City won 1 out of 6 matches while Toure was at the African Nations Cup, including a humiliating loss at home to Middlesbrough in the FA Cup.
“He’s a massive player for the club”, Lampard said of Toure. “I could see that from afar when I was at Chelsea.
“You want him back in and hopefully that will give us a boost as a squad. Of course you miss a player like Yaya with his talent and his ability, and we’ve had a time where we lost quite a few games.”
“Alongside Yaya coming back, we’ve got Bony arriving. We’ve seen what he’s been doing at Swansea and he’ll be a fantastic signing for the club.
“There’s an air of confidence about him and he’ll add to the squad.”
