Man City EDS boss thrilled with Bytyqi return

Manchester City Elite Development Squad Head Coach Simon Davies has expressed his delight at the return of Sinan Bytyqi.

City's Under-21's claimed a 3-1 victory over Southampton in SDavies' first game in charge of the academy squad on Monday night following the departure of Patrick Vieira.

Davies was left pleased with his side's performance on the night and went on to express his delight at the return of full fitness from a knee injury for talented Austrian midfielder Bytyqi.

Davies told the club's official website: "It's fantastic to see Sinan back on the pitch after his injury.

"It's been a long layoff, but he's been very professional – as good as anybody I know – for doing his rehab.

"He's done it step-by-step, he's been very patient with his instruction. We're all delighted to see him back tonight."
