Return to Celtic or…? Man City’s Patrick Roberts confirms future plans amid Girona difficulties

Manchester City winger Patrick Roberts decided to take the next step this summer after two-and-a-half successful years at Celtic where he won every available domestic trophy.

The 21-year-old joined City sister club Girona FC on loan, despite rumours of a return to Celtic or deadline day move to Huddersfield Town in the Premier League.

The former Fulham youngster has taken time to adapt to life in Spain however, and despite appearing in 8 of Girona’s 11 matches in La Liga, his game time has totalled just 234 minutes (29 minutes per game), with most of his appearances coming off the bench.

That has led to reports in recent days of Roberts’ loan move to the Estadi Montilivi being cut short and the player moving to another club.

In an interview that will air today with Cristina Busquets Rovira of TV though, Roberts made assurances that he does not plan to leave sunny Catalonia this winter and fully intends to see out his loan spell there.

The England under-21 international, who won seven trophies in his spell at Celtic, talks to Cristina about his adaptation to life in Spain and more, but the main point of interest for City fans will be his intention to stick around at Girona.
