Responding to tweet published by Man City news account City Chief, plenty of Sky Blues have been sticking up for heavily criticised defender Nicolas Otamendi – going on to claim that the Manuel Pellegrini signing is ‘under appreciated‘ and ‘disrespected‘. 

The Argentine has come under fire this campaign for his performances alongside John Stones in star defender Aymeric Laporte’s absence, with Alan Shearer stating earlier this campaign that he would love to play against the pair.

Is Otamendi underrated?

However, despite some lacklustre showings this season, Otamendi has been the preferred partner of late to makeshift defender Fernandinho  – with one supporter stating he has been ‘golden‘ for us.

The 32-year-old’s debatable best season for the Sky Blues came during the 2017/2018 Centurions season, where Otamendi managed 33 Premier League starts as Pep Guardiola’s preferred centre-half.

Taking this into account, many Citizens have flocked to praise Otamendi for his showings in the past – find all of their best comments down below.
