Who is Man City's Benjamin Garre?

Benjamin Garre played in City’s opening tour game against Borussia Dortmund as he replaced Phil Foden on 73 minutes for his first taste of senior action.

But what do we know about the Argentinian youngster?

He joined City prior to the 2017/18 season after previously playing for Velez Sarsfield – the same club Nicolas Otamendi began his career with.

Born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, Garre turned 18 earlier this month (July 2018) and has represented Argentina numerous times at youth level.

Tipped as a future international player for La Albiceleste, Garre is an exciting talent.

And football runs in his family - grandfather, Oscar Garre, was part of the 1986 Argentina World Cup-winning squad.

Full of tricks, pace and excellent technique, he is predominantly a left winger, but equally comfortable on the right flank.

Garre played for the EDS last season and will continue his development with Paul Harsley’s side this campaign.

He made 22 appearances last season, scoring six goals and creating four more.

On joining City, he said: “I won't let this opportunity with City pass. Every player dreams of it. It's a gift from God.”
