Midfielder David Silva reckons there is a clutch of future managers in the City dressing room.
The Spanish midfielder turned 30 this year and is enjoying life as one of the more senior pros at the Club, turning in some characteristically magical performances so far this season under new boss Pep Guardiola.
Asked if he would consider a future in management himself Silva said: "I don't know, I might, I wasn't thinking about being a manager but now I'm getting older, you think differently and you never know.
"In our team a lot of my team-mates could be great managers. Pablo Zabaleta could do it, Yaya Toure as well, Kolarov, Fernandinho they are all players with experience and they could be managers in the future."
