Man City defend academy work following Adam Maher criticism
Manchester City insist they haven't taken their eye off the ball in terms of academy development.
The father of AZ Alkmaar starlet Adam Maher says they rejected a move to City over concerns of first team chances.
"Manchester City FC are proud of our academy and of the success we have had for many years in developing young talent from both the UK and overseas," a club spokesman said.
"This shows that the club continues to provide an excellent opportunity for young talent to flourish and prosper."
