Man City defender John Stones revealed that he is enjoying life at Man City more than ever despite starting just six matches in the Premier League this season. Stones has the fewest minutes among the senior defenders at City this season. The defender is not looking at it as a negative and is looking forward to being called upon when needed next.
“I’m enjoying it more than ever,” Man City defender John Stones said. “Everyone wants to play every game, but with our schedule and number of games in a season, I don’t think it is physically possible. Would I like to play more? Of course, every player in our dressing room would say the same. I’m always there fighting to play every game and be fit and ready when called upon.”
“I had some little injuries and some other stuff I’ve had going on, but I’ve been ready and there for the team. Like last season, when I’ve come in, I’ve enjoyed every minute of it and that is how our team works sometimes. Everyone is rotated and the manager uses us in whatever way he thinks we can win that game,” he added. “I’ve been with the manager and a lot of the boys for all of my time at City, and we have a great understanding between each other – players and staff. We all know how much we are valued here, and what we can bring to the team when we are playing and when we are not playing.”
