In fairness I too thought he was the better Garcia. But then again I have found that our fan base in general tend to value DMs higher than they do other positions. For example in my experience of City fans ( and perhaps English fans in general) they tend to rank CBs and DMs ( or as is often put, "the guy protecting the back 4") higher than other positions. I don't know why, but you get an extra point for play ing those positions it seems. Just an unscientific observation of mine. So I wasn't surprised that Aleix was deemed better than Manu the moment I saw their natural positions. Overtime I became more impressed with Aleix, but my initial thought back then was that Manu was by far the more talented footballer. At the time!
