    i dont agree. trippier was brilliant at youth level and at city he was a stand out player, i remember going to see the youth team play and you just knew he was going to make it. i dont rate maffeo as highly.

    I thought Trippier had a decent chance to make it somewhere, but the standard of football from opponents back then was generally appalling, kick & rush & whenever faced by a higher quality opponent he struggled defensively. What benefitted him & also Ben Mee, was getting away from City & playing real football. Hopefully Maffeo is getting the same.

    Trippier is not good enough by some distance imo & will get replaced. Maffeo imo is already a far better defender, just needing match hardening for a year or so, although not as good attacking, which is probably where he will make or break it at City, as Pep wants attacking fullbacks.

    I disagree, attacking is the weaker part of his game and Girona have played him as a wingback, allowing him to focus more on that side of things.

    That's what I meant, I guess I just worded it poorly.

    But wouldn't that make it a good loan? One which allows him to strengthen an area of his game that might not have been up to scratch before?

    Sorry, I misread your response. I see him as a typical full back in the mould of Zabaleta (inevitable, soon to be cliched comparison) and don't see him being much use as a wing back currently.

    But I suppose the minutes he gets there for Girona could help him learn the position better and if that's the case then I guess the loan has done him some good and he'll be better equipped to play in a flexible Guardiola side.

    With Sagna's confirmed exit, Manchester City for now have only one recognised right-back on the books, 19-year-old Pablo Maffeo.

    Hope he gets his chance now

    I still think he goes out on loan again to Girona who should be in La Liga next year. Fernandinho would become the backup and we still buy a top #1.

    He is ready for 1st team, but we don't appreciate what we already have.
