    Top 10 Greatest Players of Manchester City’s of All Time

    Top 10 Greatest Players of Manchester City's of All Time
    Top 10 Greatest Players of Manchester City’s of All Time

    Manchester City Football Club’s history has been turbulent.

    Under the guidance of Pep Guardiola and, of course, Sheikh Mansour, the club has gone from being English champions in the 1960s to the depths of the third tier by the late 1990s, and now to record-breaking global powerhouses under Pep Guardiola and, of course, Sheikh Mansour, who have turned the club into a terrifying force in domestic competition and a genuine contender for European glory.

     

    90min has compiled a list of the top ten footballers from each generation.


    10. Pablo Zabaleta

    Manchester City v Queens Park Rangers - Premier League

    Micah Richards’ breakthrough threatened Pablo Zabaleta’s place in the starting lineup, but the Argentine’s subtle qualities saw him win the arm-wrestle and secure the right-back position.

    Zabaleta’s improvement under Roberto Mancini was exceptional, and his performances earned him a berth in the PFA Team of the Year in 2012/13. After years of consistency and improvement, it was well earned.

    During his stint with the Citizens, the South American won five major trophies, including two Premier League crowns. The City faithful will never forget his opening in that 3-2 triumph over QPR in 2012.


    9. Kevin De Bruyne

    Manchester City v Sheffield United - Premier League

    Kevin De Bruyne is the best player in England on his finest days. There’s no denying his abilities, as evidenced by his devastating first-half performance against Arsenal in December.

    With the ball in his hands, he’s so refined that he can fire a 30-yard bullet into the back of the net as well as a delicate, raking pass out to the flank. When it comes to playmaking, he knows every trick in the book.

    City would not have become centurions in 2017/18 if it hadn’t been for him. They would not have been able to fend off Liverpool in the final weeks of the previous season. They couldn’t possibly be the same team.


    8. Bert Trautmann

    FA Cup Final
    Playing in goal, Bert Trautmann – who had recently been released from a prisoner-of-war camp in Lancashire – overcame the prejudice and hatred of Citizens fans with his incredible shot-stopping abilities.

    By the time of his 545th appearance for the Sky Blues, Trautmann had become an adopted member of the Manchester City family. Supporters no longer held his nationality against him, having seen the German perform one of the bravest, most dangerous acts in footballing history.

    The 1956 FA Cup final saw his side face off with Birmingham City. The Sky Blues would emerge with a 3-1 triumph, though the real story was Trautmann’s breaking his neck with a quarter-hour remaining.

    Incredibly, he stayed on the pitch, and pulled off some remarkable saves, as he did throughout his 15 years in the northwest.


    7. Mike Summerbee

    Mike Summerbee won the First Division, the FA Cup, the League Cup, the European Cup Winners’ Cup, and the Second Division during his 452 games for Manchester City.

    The Englishman and the Citizens, who were a fantastic match, had a wonderful decade. Summerbee, who was adored by both fans and teammates, became a legend in the late 1960s when he and the club won four major titles in three seasons.


    6. Colin Bell

    The City faithful have been able to see ‘the King of the Kippax’ play for their beloved team for the past 13 years. He was something of a cult icon, thanks to his electrifying performances for both the England national team and the Sky Blues.

    Colin Bell was a part of Summerbee’s glory since the two were regarded as two of the finest Citizens players of the twentieth century.


    5. Yaya Toure

    Manchester City v Manchester United - FA Cup Semi Final

    Some footballers were made for big moments. One of them is Yaya Toure.

    During his first season in England, he made history by hitting the winning goals in the semi-finals and finals of the 2011 FA Cup, ending the club’s 35-year wait for more silverware.

    Toure’s double at St James’ Park a year later – a magnificent curling attempt and a furious blast into the roof of the net – won a critical 2-0 victory in the penultimate round of Premier League fixtures.

    The Ivorian and the Sky Blues won their first Premier League title as a result of this. They doubled their goals in 2013/14, thanks to Toure’s blistering play in midfield, which resulted in 20 goals and several stunning moments.


    4. Eric Brook

    Eric Brook, who played for Manchester City between the end of World War I and the start of World War II, was the club’s greatest ever goalscorer until Sergio Aguero’s emergence.

    In 494 appearances, the striker scored 177 goals, leading the Sky Blues to a league title and an FA Cup, and ensuring his name would go down in City history.

    Brook, who is known for his cannon-like right boot and massive stature, proved much too powerful for many of his opponents, impressing international selectors with his overpowering style of play.


    3. Vincent Kompany

    FBL-ENG-PR-MAN CITY-LEICESTER

    Last May, remember Vincent Kompany’s tremendous goal against Leicester City? People would argue it’s not realistic if someone wrote a script in which the same thing happened.

    He was the captain, and he had a history of ailments. As the game with the Foxes neared the final 20 minutes, he’d worked hard to come back on the field for his club, and they sorely needed a saviour.

    His outrageous strike from 100 miles out transformed the course of the EPL title race. It turned out to be his parting gift to the Etihad crowd, who had seen him put on so many commanding performances.

    He was a giant among giants as City lifted ten major championships with his help, making him one of the best CBs of the modern age.


    2. Sergio Aguero

    Manchester City v Crystal Palace - Premier League

    Last May, do you recall Kompany’s tremendous goal against Leicester City? People would argue it’s not realistic if someone wrote a script in which the same thing happened.

    He was the captain, and he had a history of ailments. As the game with the Foxes neared the final 20 minutes, he’d worked hard to come back on the field for his club, and they sorely needed a saviour.

    Kompany’s incredible shot from 100 miles out changed the course of the Premier League title race. It turned out to be his parting gift to the Etihad crowd, who had seen him put on so many commanding performances.

    He was one of the best centre-backs of the modern period, and he helped City win ten major trophies with his help.


    1. David Silva

    Manchester City v Watford FC - Premier League

    El Mago, the sorcerer. This is an apt title for the guy whose brilliance has enthralled Premier League spectators for the past decade.

    Over the course of his 10 seasons with City, DaviSilva has created a number of mesmerizing moments, with his superhuman abilities guiding the team to the top of the league. Last season, they won a historic domestic treble, and the Spaniard was one of the main orchestrators.

    Throughout his career with the team, he has contributed 90 assists and 57 goals in 300 games in the Premier League.

    His City career is replete with memorable moments that will live on in the hearts of Sky Blues supporters for a long time.
