Manchester City finally building a Fan-base… and Legacy?
Generally, football fans presume that Manchester City is a club that works only because of their gigantic reserves of money. I’d willingly call these fans haters because it would be downright ignorant of me to suggest that Manchester City hasn’t increased their team chemistry since their emergence into the English Premier League.
With each passing day the harmony at Eastlands continues to increase. Clearly, manager Roberto Mancini has re-created a club that is set to dominate European football in the years to come. The impressive thing about Mancini is that the Italian has managed to improve City’s teamwork. Manchester City has now evolved into a team that is known for their impregnable defense and orchestrated attacks.
The blue part of Manchester has been enjoying the bounties of their good form in English Premier League for most of the season. The rising moon continues to eclipse over all other Premier League team, including their arch rivals Manchester United. Presently, City posses the top spot in Premier League with United breathing down their necks two points away. With all this success and history, City is finally turning into a club that players would be willing to fight for.
Take the example of Manchester City’s star midfielder, David Silva. In a recent interview, the Spanish international told reporters that he was happy with his life at Eastlands. The attacking midfielder joined City in 2010 from Valencia for a reported transfer fee of £30 million. Reports also informed that the 26-year-old Spaniard had inked a six-year contract with City.
Valencia was forced to sell their coveted midfielder in order to balance their books. Silva told reporters that he was happy with his life at the Spanish outfit but unforeseeable circumstances made him travel to England. After a brief adjustment period at City, Silva soon established himself as one of the best midfielders in Europe.
“I was very happy at Valencia, but because of some circumstances I had to leave,” Silva said. City were the ones that wanted me the most. I am very happy in England, I have two years left on my contract and I want to see it out. Right now, I do not want to return (to Spain), I am enjoying life in England, people treat me wonderfully and I want to continue enjoying this.”
“Mancini has complete trust in me, which is very important for a player and I am very happy. My team-mates are adapting well to my game and that is very good for me.”
