Manchester City midfielder Jack Byrne is thrilled by the praise from former City striker Niall Quinn.

Quinn likened his fellow Irishman to Manchester United legend Paul Scholes after City's UEFA Youth League tie with Viktoria Plzen.

"It was a great feeling, he's such a hero back in Ireland - I didn't think I actually played that well in the game but it was a nice feeling that someone so respected in the game said that about me," Byrne told City's website.
