“Times”: Martin Petrov proved that he has a place in Manchester City
The footballers of Manchester City, who played against Orlando Pirates yesterday, did not prove that they can compete with the top four of England, commented “Times”.
Only Martin Petrov, Stephen Ireland and Craig Bellamy proved that they have a place in the team for the next season during the first match of the friendly tournament “Vodacom” in South Africa.
The Bulgarian midfielder made excellent attacks and assisted the strikers well. The overall performance of the team however wasn’t good, and the loss with 2:0 was not surprising. The midfielders were good at keeping the ball, but the strikers did not deliver, added the newspaper.
