Manchester City and Argentina International Pablo Zabaleta has talked up more contentment in the Champions Squad this summer…

The uncompromising utility man who would play in goals if called upon, has revealed the satisfaction himself, Sergio Aguero and Carlos Tevez are enjoying in Manchester right now:

‘For us it is a new experience here. Whenever you leave your country you learn a lot of things…It is great for Carlos, Sergio and me. We play together for the national team and I played with them in the youth teams…The opportunity we have in England is making a big impact in our lives. The culture is different and the football is different and we are really enjoying it here. Manchester is one of the best places in the UK.’

One factor City’s hierarchy will be taking further comfort from is that with these Argentinian fellas you certainly get a return on your investment in blood, sweat and Pride In Battle!
