New York City FC will likely have Manchester City-owned players on its roster when it begins play in 2015.

In an interview posted on Manchester City’s YouTube channel, NYCFC Head Coach Jason Kreis said his club can have players on-loan from Manchester City.

“We’ll have the ability to take four players on loan from the club here,” Kreis said in the interview. “I’m looking a lot at the U21s and the U18s at the moment and also the players that are out on loan.”

Kreis added, “We have a very big interest in bringing some City players over to join us in New York and I certainly think the talent’s there and the ambition is there as well.”

Kreis will continue to monitor the young players over the next year before making any personnel decisions. He has been in Manchester working with City’s coaching staff since he formally began his duties as coach in the beginning of 2014.

The video snippet may be viewed below, with the rest of the interview airing on CityTV later this week.

I’m don’t feel good about the NYCFC/MCFC relationship. Seems to be too much a MCFC project rather than a MLS/NYCFC project. Another Chivas USA in the making?
