Manchester City fans praised Carlos Borges after he was named the Citizens’ U18 Players’ Player of the Year.
The Citizens have enjoyed highs and lows this campaign, winning the Premier League and League Cup but also losing the Champions League final against Chelsea 1-0. Of this term’s squad, Phil Foden is the only player to come through City’s youth system to have any real impact in the first team.
City fans will be hoping they have another great hope on their hands, however, in Borges. He has enjoyed a wonderful season, scoring 13 times and providing 19 assists in just 24 matches (Transfermarkt) – that has earned him recognition from his fellow teammates.
Perhaps that kind of record will see him follow in the footsteps of Foden sooner rather than later.
Will Borges make it at City?
The news was shared on Twitter by @City_Xtra, and it attracted plenty of attention from the City supporters. They took to the social media platform to share their thoughts on the matter, with one fan describing the youngster’s performance level as ‘insane’.
Let’s see what the fans had to say about Borges below
“Some player him”
“Already better than Sterling”
“Promising lad….. Success”
“That’s insane numbers”
“Promote him to the first team”
“Remember his name.. he’ll be better than Mbappe”
