Man City delighted for Swiss World Cup winner Freddy Veseli

Manchester City management are delighted seeing Swiss U17 starlet Freddy Veseli win the World Cup on Sunday.

Switzerland's 1-0 win over hosts and holders Nigeria is the perfect birthday present for the Swiss centre back, who turns 17 this coming Friday and captained his country to glory in Abuja.

Former City academy boss Jim Cassell told mcfc.co.uk: "Frederick is an exceptionally talented defender renowned for his ability on the ball. He can also play in a number of positions and could eventually develop into a central midfield player."
