Manuel Akanji – ‘I’m happy and I’m tired’ after his Manchester City debut

Manchester City’s new centre-back was a transfer no one saw coming on Deadline Day.

The Swiss international started in central defense alongside Ruben Dias as City beat Sevilla 4-0 in their opening game in Group G with goals from Erling Haaland (2), Phil Foden and Dias.

“I’m happy, and I’m tired… But the most important thing is of course that we got the three points, that we kept zero as a team and I’m very happy that I was able to help the team.” said Akanji after his debut.

“The guys made me really comfortable. I had a lot of space on the ball, [I] always had the opportunity to play a pass. I like to have the ball, to pass from behind, and here with these guys with so much quality, it seems easy to me.”
