Manchester City: Some fans left angered by contract offer for John Stones

Manchester City’s defence has come under fire recently, as indicated by Alan Shearer’s comments on Match of the Day, via The Manchester Evening News.

This has intensified since the 3-2 loss against Norwich City, a game that John Stones played the full 90 minutes in, getting a rating of 6.2 from WhoScored.

While there are questions from the outside, it has emerged that Man City still have faith in the 25-year-old, with Txiki Begiristain offering a new contract that would keep the England international at the Etihad until 2024:

Stones has played three games in all competitions this season, having got on the pitch 39 times during the 2018/19 campaign, as per Transfermarkt.
