Eric Garcia reveals who surprised him during Manchester City training

Manchester City defender Eric Garcia admits he is ‘very happy’ with his adaptation process in England.

Garcia joined City from Barcelona in 2017, spending time with the first-team in between Premier League 2 appearances.

And despite the difference in language, culture and playing style, the 18-year-old believes he will only get better.

“I’m in my third season in Manchester already and I’m very happy,” he told Marca. “At first it was more complicated, but then I adapted after a few months.

“When I first went, I was hoping to see how things were going. We all know the Premier League is a different league, it’s more physical. I’m very happy with how it’s gone.”


“Everyone is at a phenomenal level, but Bernardo Silva surprised me the most,” Garcia added.

“I had seen him at Monaco but not much, so I was surprised when I first trained with him.”

City return to domestic action against Chelsea on November 23.
