Martin Petrov Knows The End Is Nigh

Martin Petrov Knows The End Is Nigh


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

Martin Petrov admits he could be on his way out of Manchester City. The 30-year-old attacking winger is beginning to feel uneasy about the current Eastlands situation and reports suggest he will insist on talking to Mark Hughes once he returns from international duty with Bulgaria.

He told the Bulgarian Dnevnik...

'I don't see City depending too much on me this year, at least from what I have seen from the pre-season friendlies so far. No footballer is content with polishing the bench and I am no exception.'

'There were several inquiries but no offers as of yet.'

'In the next week I will try to speak with Hughes and if I get the green light for a transfer I will start searching for a new team.'


This news is extremely disappointing as Petrov has looked really impressive during pre-season, nevertheless one can't blame the man for wanting regular first team footy.

I said before the window opened I thought he might go. He's a great player but with our current options I just can't see him getting regular games. Combine that with his age and injury record and I could see us replacing him. Having said that though I don't see us selling him until a replacement can be brought in.

He's scored two goals in pre-season coming off the bench. Why should City want to sell him?

Defences routinely foul themselves when Rigsby tears at them. It would be madness to let him go. But. After the way the club and fans have stood by him through serious injury, he'd do well to keep his trap shut.

Its alright to say don't let him go, but he is of an age where this may be his last world cup chance. Will he not be selected if he is not playing regular football? Will he be in the starting side this season. I certainly would play him left wing with Robbi on the right, but who do you leave out?

Hughes shouldnt sell petrov and petrov cant expect to play every game. So a common ground hopefully will be found. Citys left wing looks superb with robinho and petrov. If pertrov goes, city need to invest in someone youner, less injury prone and up 4 a challenge. Petrovs form has been good pre-season and i hope he stays. Bulgaria havent got a better left winger than him, so a world cup place would be guaranteed for petrov.

There are rumblings of a David Bentley signing. I'd rather we don't.
