Manchester City: Fans unimpressed with John Stones

Manchester City: Fans unimpressed with John Stones - Manchester City

Plenty of Manchester City fans were discussing John Stones on Twitter after a post from @City_Chief on the social media platform, with many believing that the 25-year-old needs to do better.

The England defender, rated at £32.4m on TransferMarkt, came to the club from Everton in a £47.5m deal in 2016. He has gone on to make 129 appearances for Pep Guardiola’s side, scoring five goals in that time, and has won eight trophies at the club, including two Premier League titles.

Unfortunately, Stones has suffered several injuries in his time at the Etihad Stadium, with various fitness issues ruling him out of 14 games this season. His first campaign at Manchester City saw him subjected to plentiful criticism (as per Goal.com) and, last year, Guardiola felt compelled to publicly insist that he had no intentions of selling the defender, despite transfer reports to the contrary (via The Telegraph).

Should Man City keep or sell Leroy Sane this summer?
