The exciting young Spanish left-back has become our latest summer signing, joining from Belgian side Anderlecht and penning a four-year deal with the Club.

And, in his first official interview with, the 21-year-old spoke about becoming a City supporter from an early age, following the example of his brother – and how former Etihad legend David Silva was his favourite player growing up.

“I was a City fan when I was a kid,” Gomez revealed.

“When we were kids, my brother used to support City. He’s the main reason I became a fan as well.

“Once he was on a school trip to London and I asked him to bring a David Silva shirt.

“At that time, he was wearing the No.21 shirt and he was my favourite player because I used to play in his position when I was a kid.

“I feel very proud that I can wear his number, like Ferran Torres did here.

“I think it's very nice that another Spanish player takes the No.21 shirt and I will give my best wearing it.”
