Jeff Whitley proud to have played with brother Jim at Man City

Former Manchester City midfielder Jeff Whitley says playing with brother Jim with the Sky Blues was the best moment of his career.

Jeff admits it was a magical experience to form one half of a Blues brothers' partnership alongside Jim who himself figured almost 40 times for the Club before moving on in 2001 to Wrexham.

“Playing with my brother was special full stop," Jeff told City's website.

“We used to play in Alexandra Park and we'd train there for hours and hours then we'd go home and then talk about what it might be like to play professional football and this and that.

“It's something that when it came to it, where we were playing together me and him were talking about it, we'd laugh about it, saying 'This is amazing'. And it was amazing because it doesn't happen all the time.

“I know City have had a number of brothers who have played at the club but for me and our kid it was just brilliant, absolutely brilliant."
