City's Summer Clear Out Commences

Manchester City have announced the departure of three senior players as they begin to shape the squad for the coming season.

Veterans, Benjani, Petrov and Sylvinho have been deemed surplus to requirements, and will all begin the process of looking for a new club over the coming months.

The club has also decided not to renew the contracts of three further players - academy prospects Jack Redshaw, Tobias Johansen and Karl Moore.

We at VMC wish them all the best with their future careers, and thank them for some memorable perfomances, including this compilation from legend Martin Petrov.

Your Comments

No room for any of them to be honest. At times Petrov produced some good stuff for us, but would he really be classed as a legend?
Once a Blue
I share your comments, once a blue. Petrov often flattered to deceive and has the same air of laziness that besets Bobinstov at DeliaLand. Sylvinho is a lovely guy and very well thought of throughout football but came to us too late in the to make a sustainable contribution. Benjani? What can we say if he does nothing for anyone ever again we can remember him for wrecking Munich Day over in Stretford (from their point of view anyway). Nice guy, great smile and very humble but not one for the new era. I too wish them all well, as I do with any player that moves on. The bells are ringing in terms of who comes next and we are still signing a new team more or less every day. Be interesting to see what the summer finally brings.

Good bye and good luck - sorry Sylvinhio didn't join our coaching staff.

Will miss Sylvinho, less so the other two, altthough I shall never forget the "shoulder of God" LOL.

I wish them all the best of luck - but not when they play against City.

Many thanks to them all. Players come and go, I feel for the young players delisted also, but the Club will go onward and upwards me hopes.
