Walk and Talk: Nathan Ake

Nathan Ake is the first City player to take part in our new Walk and Talk series.

Ake has played an important role in the opening weeks of the season, starting in each of our first two matches of the campaign against West Ham United and Bournemouth.

After a brief injury lay-off, the Dutch international returned to Pep Guardiola’s squad for Saturday’s 1-1 draw with Aston Villa, coming on as a late substitute.

In the first episode of Walk and Talk, the defender’s knowledge is put to the test with some quickfire questions about his City career to date.


Ake also looks back on his incredible goal line clearance against Arsenal last season, before discussing some of the iconic Dutch players to grace the Premier League in the past.

He also reveals his first impressions of Kevin De Bruyne, who he spent time with during their younger years at Chelsea, as well as his reaction to comedian Troy Hawke greeting the City players before setting off on this summer’s pre-season tour in the United States.

Watch the first episode of Walk and Talk, with Nathan Ake, in the video above...
