City Need Keeper Cover

Google language translator


With Manchester City number one shot stopper Joe Hart sidelined for at least a month following a badly sprained ankle, City boss Mark Hughes is frantically looking for cover.

City's number two, Kasper Schmeichel has been belly aching for months because of the lack of first team opportunities, however, it is thought manager Mark Hughes has not been overly impressed with the son of former United ace Peter Schmeichel's dedication to the cause and wants to bring in another keeper.

Rumours circulating Manchester suggest Sparky is keen to take United's third choice goalkeeper, Ben Foster on a month's loan, however Rags boss Sir Alex Ferguson is thought to have dismissed the idea.

Under Premier League rules a club can be granted special permission to arrange a loan outside the normal transfer window if injuries have left them unreasonably exposed.

A month's loan keeper is really a side issue. yes we need cover in case of an injury to Schmeichel, now in the first XI. But we have to bring in another permanent keeper. It is highly risky to run a Premiership side with just two keepers in the first team squad. Suspensions or injuries could reduce us to playing SWP between the sticks! After all, hasn't he said that's the only position he hasn't played for us yet?
