“He’s top of the league!”
Joleon Lescott was a big part of the Roberto Mancini regime and new era of success at Manchester City, forming a steady and solid partnership with captain Vincent Kompany as the Blues rose to become one of English football’s super-powers.
In total, Lescott won four major trophies at City, including the Premier League on that legendary day in 2012 – let’s forget his wayward header almost cost City the game, but in a strange way helped create the most memorable moment in Premier League history.
Now 35, Lescott has revealed to Soccer AM that he is back at the Etihad with a new role.
“Yeah, that’s an exciting role. I’m working with the lads who are on loan, currently there’s around 30 players,” Lescott said.
“They’re between the ages of 18 and 23. Well, with the exception of Joe Hart – he’s not 23 (laughs).”
Lescott revealed that he is helping out youngsters who are dispatched on loan across Europe, and is now playing his part in the development of young players at Manchester City, the club where he contributed to so much success.
