Manchester City fans are far from happy after it was revealed Liam Delap has a significant injury, although it is not sure when he will return to the action.
Delap is a highly-rated youngster at the Etihad Stadium. Last term, he scored 30 goals in all competitions for the club’s development squad (Transfermarkt) and, with the departure of Sergio Aguero on a free transfer, there was hope in some quarters that he could break into the first-team squad and pick up some serious minutes.
However, he is yet to play a single minute for the senior side this term under Pep Guardiola, and he has now been dealt a further blow. As per EDS Coach Brian Barry-Murphy, the 18-year-old is on a list of several players who have significant injuries and it is not sure when he will be available.
Should Delap stay at City?
The news was shared on Twitter by @City_Xtra, and it attracted plenty of attention from the supporters. They took to the social media platform to share their thoughts.
Let’s see what the fans had to say about the Delap news below
“citeh’s strikers are cursed.”
“Shame. I really thought he’d break through”
“Pain, this was his proper opportunity before we go and sign a striker”
“don’t tell me his bones are made of glass as well”
