Philippe Sandler delighted with Man City debut

Philippe Sandler was delighted to make his debut for Manchester City in yesterday's FA Cup win over Rotherham.

The Dutch defender, who was played at centre-half, featured as a second-half substitute for the 7-0 thumping.

Sandler said, "I always play there. Honestly, I have never been in the midfield. Why now? I stood there during the training session. Sending passes. Since I've been here, I try to develop as a central defender.

"Vincent Kompany helps me enormously. I learn a lot from him.

"I do not know if I will get another chance again soon. I especially want to be completely fit first."
