Training: City limber up ahead of our date at the Palace!

Attention switched back to the Premier League and specifically next Monday’s trip to Crystal Palace as the City players went through their collective paces at the CFA today.

In the wake of our qualification for the quarter-finals of the Champions League following our 5-0 aggregate last-16 win over Sporting, the mood was buoyant amongst the squad.

Despite some blustery conditions, the players were in great spirits, showcasing their skills via some intensive rondos, sharp passing drills along with some fitness and stretching exercises.

Jack Grealish also had a pressing question, quizzing Rodrigo on the thorny topic of whether he thought there were more doors or more wheels in the world. It makes you wonder!


And the goalkeeper’s union also showcased their special ability – with Scott Carson again to the fore following his memorable Champions League debut for the Club against Sporting on Wednesday night.
