IN CONVERSATION WITH KALVIN PHILLIPS | SPEAK TO MAN CITY. A new guest on the Official Man City Podcast is Kalvin Phillips, a defender for City and England.
This article talks about an interview with Jack Grealish for the Man City show.
The tough player came from Leeds in the summer of 2022 and helped us win the Champions League, the Premier League, and the FA Cup last season, which was the first time ever that we had done that.
Before he joined Pep Guardiola’s team, the likeable Yorkshireman did incredibly well in the Elland Road team’s youth programmes and became a hero at the club after helping them get promoted from the Championship in 2019–20.
This week on the Official Man City Podcast, Phillips talks with Paul Dickov and Rob Pollard about his career as a professional football player so far.
He talks about growing up in Leeds, his first game as a professional, moving to City, and a lot more.
Several news sources say that Mikel Arteta is actively looking for a candidate for Jorginho, and that Kalvin Phillips, a midfielder for Manchester City, is at the top of his list.
Even though they added Declan Rice and Kai Havertz to their centre last summer to make it stronger, Arsenal is still determined to make this area even stronger. Football365 said that the Gunners are trying to get Phillips’ services.
The English player has had trouble getting a lot of playing time at the Etihad Stadium since he moved there from Leeds United to Manchester City in July of last year. There were a lot of reports over the summer that he might be looking for a new club.
So far this season, Pep Guardiola has continued to use him rarely, and he is now seen as unnecessary.
Just My Thoughts on Arsenal
Arsene Wenger might want to add Phillips to their middle, but only if Arteta can get him back to the form he showed against Leeds United and England at Euro 2020.
Some say he isn’t disciplined, especially when it comes to how fit he is, and getting him would definitely be risky.
There are also doubts about whether City would sell another player to Arsenal. But we’ll find out soon enough—the January transfer window starts sooner than we think.
