Manchester City fans have taken to Twitter to discuss Oleksandr Zincheko’s season so far, after a stunning campaign in which he has excelled whilst Benjamin Mendy has been out injured.
The Ukrainian almost left the Etihad Stadium back in the summer, after the Citizens agreed a £16m fee with Wolves for his signature – Zinchenko himself decided to stay in Manchester and fight for his place in the team, despite making just 14 appearances last season.
442oons have charted the entire career of Man City’s main man Sergio Aguero through song in the hilarious video below…
He found himself behind Mendy in the pecking order at the start of the current campaign, but after another serious injury to the Frenchman, 22-year-old Zinchenko took his chance by the scruff of the neck – in that respect, it feels as if he is always an unsung hero due to the pedigree, price tag and reputation of the World Cup winning left-back.
He has one goal and four assists to his name this season, starring under Pep Guardiola as he marauds up and down the left flank to great effect, and his efforts have clearly gone down well with the City supporters on Twitter…
The season so far…

Can city take note of this and stop spending £50m+ on players every year. You know, use the scouts better. They’re out there. Just need to find them, coach them and then play em.

This boy loves City and if I ever see any Zinchenko slander EVER I will fight that person!

We don’t need left-back anymore! He’s amazing and can play midfield too! What else can we ask?

Am glad he stayed.

Glad he stayed, love the kid.
He would have helped Wolves tremendously, wonder where he would have played?
