Zac ​Steffen honoured to join Man City goalkeeper stocks

Manchester City star Zack Steffan is proud to have joined the club this summer.

The American is now City's no.2 shot stopper, taking over from the departed Claudio Bravo.

And he cannot hide his delight at getting the chance to play in the Premier League and train with someone of the quality of Ederson.

"The Club has helped me in so many ways from finding an apartment and getting a car so I can focus on football," said Steffen to the club website.

"Eddie (Ederson) and Scott (Carson) have been great – as have the coaches, Xabi (head of goalkeeping Xabier Mancisidor) and Rich (goalkeeping coach Richard Wright).

"They had a close-knit group last year - and you need that in the goalkeeper's union to be successful.

"We push each other which is what you need to get better. My mindset is to try and learn and grow every single day.

"I am really honoured to be part of the group.

"I was in quarantine for 14 days but now I am excited to shop around and explore Manchester.

"However, I do need to learn how to cook – my cooking is not so good!"
