Man City defender Lescott: New arrivals have added edge to training
The 27-year-old says that the enhancement of the squad has helped to put a fresh edge on this week’s return to training – which he had been led to believe would be a player’s nightmare!
“I have been as excited as any of the supporters by the new signings, but I was excited about what City were doing even when I was at Everton,” Lescott told the Manchester Evening News.
“I was excited, not because I thought I would play with them, but because I’m a football fan, and you want to play with and against the best in the world.
“The three players we have signed are all world-class, so I knew about them before the World Cup. But it’s exciting – I love to see who we are signing and I’m grateful just to be a part of it.
“Yaya is also exciting for us. The protection he gives a defence is immense, so hopefully he can put another three years on my career!
“Jerome looks naturally gifted and can play with both feet. He will add to the competition in defence, but it’s healthy competition, and I’m sure the gaffer will see fit to change things when necessary.”
