Excellent, only the best for our pool stoppers.
Have they mistaken Gerrard with Vieira?
Calm down you guys we’re in for Nathan Collins.
Do show where I mentioned those players. More so how two players you mentioned being under 30 have anything to do with clubs binning club legends when they get the wrong side of 30.
Us keeping Young is beyond stupid but it has nothing to do with the claim that big clubs are ruthless. It's just a mental decision.
Maybe Kompany has learnt stuff from Pep. Maybe City (or other clubs) will be happy to loan young stars (a la Derby/Chelsea) with him there. Bit soon to say he's got no chance?
He was already made of glass back then. Loads of injuries. Last season at Anderlecht he barely played.
Same at Hamburg. Almost missed his entire first season because of an injury. Also his mom died in that period and it really just didn't work there. I remember him pissing them off wanting to play the Olympics in 2008.
Expected him to go into politics when he retired. He’s a very impressive man.
Which is why the real focus / fury of the Man Utd supporters should be directed totally on the Glaziers
You're on form today.
Don't burn those City scarves just yet.
He always comes across as intelligent when I've seen him on TV doing punditry and interviews. Good for Anderlecht getting him in as player/manager, I think he'll do well.
Mistake. But I guess he wanted to leave. At the top, as a nothing-left-to-prove veteran legend.
Hope to hell De Ligt doesn't go to City ffs. United or Barça, please.
Will miss him a lot. Always loved the guy. Great player, great captain, good man. Most Mancunian bloke I’ve ever seen not born in the city and gave us everything.
Devasatated to see him go but it’s the right time to go out on a high. Would’ve killed me to watch him slowly decline at the club.
Finally the fecker is gone. Scores against us every single time.
Red tinted specs off - One of the best professionals in football right now and a brilliant leader. Captain material through and thorough. Big loss to city.
This makes city favourites for De Ligt I reckon. They can now give him a clear run at captaincy within a season or 2.
So City let a defender go that played a big role in winning them the league title while United give extended contracts to Young,Smalling,Jones.....
Notice how they didn't wait for his performances to fall off a cliff?
Good luck to him I have nothing but respect for the guy. He's one of few City player I just can't dislike, tremendous leader and from what it seems a very intelligent man. I think he has a good chance of becoming a succesful manager.
Class act, on and off the pitch.
Some end to his City career as well with that thunderbolt of a title winner against Leicester.
Can definately see him being a great manager.
Now City will get de Light and have him, Laporte and Stones for the cb position. Sigh.
Not sure why everyone is giving him any grief for the quadruple comments. Wish we had some players who spoke with that kind of ambition. Meanwhile we’re here just trying to make top 4.
Top class player and professional.
Great player for them. Title winning goal, but as a defender, a liability over the past 2 seasons.
In fact, he was becoming a dangerous player as in the half a yard he lost pushed him to tackle recklessly and endanger the opponent. He escaped a lot of reds on reputation alone.
They can use this if if hasn't been thrown away.
City now have an actual legend who was very good.
The world is changing, and I don't like it.
What a signing he has been for them. I reckon he’s nailed on to return as manager at some stage too if it goes well for him.
Great player and a class act from what I have seen. Up there with the great defenders in the Premier League.
Hope Pep leaves next.
Great player, and the premier league will be poorer with his loss.
Obviously it is hard to say how anyone will do as a manager but I don't think I've ever seen anyone as suited to becoming one. He's a very intelligent and well spoken guy along with being a great leader and motivator. He's also been very fortunate to work with excellent managers with various styles. He will have learnt a lot from working with Mancini and Pep. I'd struggle to think of a better grounding.
Wrong. Everything Man Utd does is terrible and the worst. We're the worst club ever. Get your message right.
Really odd move for him considering he’s only 33 and still capable of playing at the top.
He’ll find that he’s a good deal better than all of their players, yet he’ll feel as if he shouldn’t play himself. It would have been more logical if he’d gone to MLS or China or somewhere for 2 years then come back to Anderlecht.
Only 360 appearances - they really took good care of him. Has just the character and behaviour we are missing
No Patrick Vieira
Good luck to him. One of the more likeable City players along with David Silva.
League will miss his big head though.
They'll be booing him before the end of next season as they continue to be shit. On the other hand, he may bring some much needed positivity to their camp. Then again, so did Solskjaer at United, and look at where we are now.
They did two polls
A very good footballer and seemed to be a very good captain for them. A club legend for them.
Top top player who will be missed in the dressing room. Good luck to him, always rated him very highly.
I really respect him. Wish him all the best
Interesting gig as a player-manager at Anderlecht. Good luck to him, one of the more likeable City players.
His quadruple comment will forever be remembered though!
Great player and seemed a nice bloke when he wasn't talking about a quadruple
