Eggs, superstitions and team-mate reveals: Getting to know CJ Egan-Riley

CJ Egan-Riley reveals all about himself, his team-mates and his football career as he answers 50 quickfire questions whilst giving us a guided tour of the City Football Academy (CFA).

Pizza toppings, football boots, and the all-important question of whether you add the milk into your cup of tea first or last are just some of the topics up for discussion as we get to know our Academy graduate a little better.

The nineteen-year-old defender has been at the Club for more than a decade and, having made his senior debut against Wycombe Wanderers in September, he was rewarded with a first Champions League appearance in City’s goalless draw with Sporting.

Football was only part of the conversation as he responded to our questions at the CFA, where he also shared his matchday superstitions, how he likes his eggs and his aspirations for the future.
