Our Bulgarians Happy To Stay

Both Martin Petrov and Valeri Bojinov agents have assured Manchester City fans they will remain at Eastlands for the foreseeable future.

Budding blogger, Blue Lad Scragg sent us the following article.

Valeri Bojinov

According to Valeri Bojinov's agent Gerry Pambola the 23-year-old Bulgarian striker will remain a Man City player. Bojinov has recently been linked with a return to Serie A but he has stated that he wants to prove to the fans that he can be a great Manchester City player.

Pambola told the media...

'Manchester City have assured me that he remains a key part of their squad, He has been very unfortunate with injury, but they intend to continue the working relationship and have no plans to part.'

Palomba believes Bojinov may have sentimental links to Italy but City's assurances mean there is no need for a move.

'I have spoken to Mark Hughes in person and, as the manager, he is the man appointed to decide who stays and who goes. For as long as he gives us the assurances we want to hear, why look for a different club?'

Blue Lad Scragg says...

I personally think given the chance Bojinov can prove what a good player he is for City. He puts himself about and is a hard-working player and I think he proved that he is quality by scoring that fantastic goal against Tottenham.

Martin Petrov

Again there has been speculation concerning Petrov linking him with a move to Spurs or Everton. Petrov suffered a nasty knee ligaments injury early on in the season and ended up missing the majority of our games bar the last four or five.

Nevertheless Petrov's agent Franco Moretti says that the 30-year-old is a big fan of manager, Mark Hughes and that he intends to continue playing under him.

'I think he will be staying at City,' said Moretti. 'He has a contract with them. I think he will stay at Eastlands for sure, because the coach (Mark Hughes) is staying there. He is a big fan, so he will definitely stay at City.'

Blue Lad Scragg says...

I think that Petrov is a good player but did look a little slow on return from his injury but I do think he still has a future at City.

Petrov will keep robinho on his toes on the left wing. Which is good. I reckon boj will eventually go back to italy in the transfer window. I wouldnt believe a word from a footballer nowadays. If/when we sign two top strikers ie -eto and tevez - boj will want to go with the world cup coming up.

i dont really think we had much too fear about these two possibly leaving, why would they, boj got assurances and petrov just back from bad injury, petrov a little slower maybe, but also think he is also game shy so fitness and speed should pick up over the summer. i hope boj stays for some time as i see him as the burly dtriker we need, for sure will be city's drogba in a couple of years.

It's great to have Petrov back playing. he is still one of the best crossers of the ball whilst sprinting that I have seen. He will need to work hard on fitness after such serious injuries/operations, but the man will do it. He is a complete professional.
