Fabian Delph statement as a Manchester City player
Just when you were sick in the teeth of bulls**t statements from Fabian Delph, another one comes along. This is the cliched leaving a club one, where a player says what great fans he’s leaving, how it was a difficult decision and how it was a footballing decision to win trophies. Blah, blah, blah, and of course, no mention of money.
Remember, pinch of salt…
Fabian’s Judas Statement
“Leaving Aston Villa football club is the hardest decision I have ever had to make.
“I have had some amazing times and made great friends during my time at the club. I will always be thankful to them for giving me the opportunity to play in the Premier League.
“As has been widely reported, I initially turned down the opportunity to join Manchester City. That decision was purely down to the love I have for Aston Villa and their great supporters.
“When I was made captain of Villa it was a huge honour for me and I took the responsibility incredibly seriously. I signed a new contract last season with the view of staying at the club for the duration of the deal and never with the intention of leaving a year later.
“My decision to stay initially was purely based on the emotion and feelings that I hold for the club and the people there rather than looking at the football opportunity that had been placed in front of me.
“I have been immensely proud to captain such a great club and want to thank everyone at Aston Villa – most importantly the fans – for the amazing support they have shown me during my time there.
“I am now excited for the future with Manchester City and helping the club to succeed in the coming season and beyond.”
