Get to know our U18s: Cole Palmer

With our Under-18s in Croatia for a pre-season training camp, we speak to some of our City starlets to find out a little more about them. Next up, Cole Palmer.

Q: Tell us a bit about where you were born – your home town…

A: I was born in Wythenshawe and grew up in Hollyhedge which is just down the road so I guess I’m a local lad.

Q: What’s your style of play?

A: I like to use one touch passing. I sometimes do dribble but I like to use quick passes where I can.

Q: Which first team player are you most like?

A: I guess I would say either David Silva or Bernardo Silva.

Q: How long have you been at City?

A: I came here at Under-8 level so it has been quite a few years now.

Q: Who is your best mate at City?

A: I would say Lewis Fiorini. We’ve come up through the different age groups together

Q: Who has helped you get to this stage the most?

A: I would say my Mum and Dad. When I was little my Dad used to take me to Hollyhedge Park every single day.

Q: What’s your best personality trait?

A: Looking ahead to this year I am going to try my hardest and give everything.

Q: Worst goal celebration you have ever seen?

A: Nothing really stands out.

Q: … and the best one?

A: D’Margio Wright-Phillips's back flips are always pretty good to watch.

Q: What’s the best piece of advice you have been given so far?

A: To never give up.

Q: Who has the best haircut in the squad?

A: I’d say Yeboah Amankwah.

Q: …and who has the worst haircut?

A:Lewis Fiorini!

Q: The best ground you’ve played at?

A: Playing at Derby’s Pride Park stadium.

Q: What is/would your chosen shirt number be and why?

A: I’ve not got a permanent number – whatever position you play in on the day you get that number. In the future I’d like to have the number 10 shirt.

Q: What has been your best on-the-pitch moment with City?

A: Probably when we won the Premier League tournament with the Under-13s as no-one had expected us to win it.
