City on Faour:
After signing a two year scholarship with the club in July 2014, Zackarias Faour hit the ground running by scoring in each of his first two u18 pre-season engagements.
A strong and exciting forward with a good first touch and eye for goal, the youngster then continued his excellent summer by representing Sweden u17s in the Nordic Tournament, adding another two strikes to his name including the opening goal in the final against Norway.
Domestically, he made his mark on the u18 Premier League campaign with seven goals in 16 appearances in a City shirt during 2014/15, including a first half hattrick against Liverpool.
The Swede hails from the same area as his country’s most famous export, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, but names Samir Nasri as one of his idols and he has the opportunity to learn from the Frenchman at close quarters at the City Football Academy.
Zack will looking to push on for a place in the UEFA Youth League in his second year as a full time footballer.
