Manchester City fans on Twitter comment on Oleksandr Zinchenko

Manchester City fans were full of praise for young Ukrainian international left-back Oleksandr Zinchenko following his performance in Tuesday’s 7-0 UEFA Champions League thrashing of Bundesliga side Schalke.

Pep Guardiola’s Citizens already led by one goal after the first leg three weeks ago, and got the job done in style at the Etihad Stadium to register a virtually unfathomable aggregate triumph of 10-2.

Zinchenko was a key part of the demolition job starting in the left-back position, rounding off a superb defensive and attacking performance with an assist for Leroy Sane to score City’s third of the night.

His form in recent times has clearly impressed City fans, many of whom didn’t expect him to be at the club beyond last summer, when he was linked with a move to Wolverhampton Wanderers amid frustrations over a lack of playing time in Manchester.

They have been waxing lyrical recently and even more so after his latest showing in sky blue, some remarking that Zinchenko is “word class,” and others thanking their lucky stars that he remained at the Etihad, placing him above others players to put him into their strongest City starting XI.
