Promising young striker David Ball has forced his way into Mark Hughes’ thinking of late, and now you can catch up with him in a mcfc.co.uk video exclusive.

The lifelong City fan is a graduate of City’s renowned Academy at Platt Lane, and after a prolific start to the season for the reserves he was named on the bench for a couple of recent games, most notably the derby at Old Trafford.

David reflects on this and his rise through the ranks at Platt Lane in a revealing chat, and there will be more to follow over the weekend when he reveals that he is just as handy on the green baize as he is on the football field.

‘David Ball: True Blue part 1’ is available to watch for free now.
