Top 10 EVER Manchester City Players – No. 6
This blog is designed to choose the greatest ever Manchester City player in my opinion (remember I am only young!). I shall publish one of these every now and again until finally we reach the best player ever to have embraced Maine Road or The City of Manchester Stadium!
*DRUM ROLL PLEASE!*
NUMBER 6 >>>
1999-2005, 2008-present – 216 appearances, 45 goals.
What’s not to love about the little fella? He’s back, where he belongs and with that we make a profit of £13million, so I’m not complaining, best of both worlds! He’s an exciting player and you never know what you will get from him; a run, a delightfully timed through-ball or and exquisite cross to create a chance (which no doubt our strikers will spurn). One thing I love is the way he doesn’t see the sky as the limit. He is intelligent, verstaile, ambitious, energetic and will attack and tackle for his team all day long.
He runs at a defence, making them sweat more than a Geordie in a test, bamboozles them with his incredible stepovers and blistering shots. He is also a great dribbler of the ball and works well with his his fellow players (the hundreds he has played with during his time with MCFC!). At only 26 years old he clearly has his best days ahead of him and working with Robinho and other quality players, whom the club will no doubt seek to buy, will make him into an unstoppable force. This is coupled with the fact that his recent performances have staggered many.
One player who I feel could make him even better is Diego from Werder Bremen. Having seen him the the UEFA Cup I feel they could compliment each other very very well. However I believe he fancies a move to Juve?
SWP, a true City legend, rediscovering his England form!
