Who is City's Greatest Ever Player? 

Manchester City FC has seen many amazing players dress their colours. They have helped the team become on of the best in England and in Europe. Even in the times when the club didn’t have the resources they have now to attract star players.

This list will take a look at the best player to ever kit up in Man City colours.

Mike Summerbee

Summerbee was part of a classic trio with Colin Bell and Francis Lee. He was also the only player on the team to start every mtch that season. It was his first season. He made 452 appearances for Manchester City and scored 68 goals in his time there. The team won 4 trophies in 3 seasons with Summerbee on the right wing from 1968 to 1970.

Vincent Kompany

He is the first name that comes to people’s mind when talking about great Manchester City players. He was captain during the club’s latest 4 premier league titles, and wore the armband with pride.  His resume and work ethic will have him go down in the history of the club as one of the best defenders to dress the colours, if not in the history of the game.

Francis Lee

Lee played an essential part during the teams most successful era in English and European football. He was a record signing from Bolton Wanderers, with a deal struck for £60,000 in 1967. He was an elite striker, scoring 148 goals on 330 appearances, who spear-headed the team during this era, known especially for his ability to win penalties and convert them at a high rate.

Yaya Toure

Regarded as one of the best players at his position, the record signing of Toure was a step towards a new Arab owned Manchester City. He always showed up in big occasions, scoring goals to help the team win important matches.

Colin Bell

He earned the nickname ‘The King’ and now has a stand named after him in the Etihad Stadium, and has been called one of the best, if not the best, to ever wear Manchester City blue. After joining the team in 1966, they went on to enjoy some of the best years in the history of the club, with Bell leading the way to greatness.

Sergio Aguero

There is no denying that ‘El Kun’ was one of the best strikers in the world. He is Manchester City’s leading goal scorer and his arrival in 2011 led to the club securing its first Premiership title in 44 years. Many believe that the club has been able to reach its current status thanks to the play of Aguero. And who are we to argue?

There have been many more legends to play for Man City FC, this is only a small sample of the best players to ever step foot on a football pitch wearing the classic blue kit. These players are so good, even cricket betting tips have good odds on them!
