A replacement status “difficult to accept”, Laporte wonders

Barred by competition at Manchester City, the central defender is not sure he wants to stay.

Aymeric Laporte cannot guarantee he will stay at Manchester City. In recent months, the center-back has lost his place in Pep Guardiola’s starting XI. The 27-year-old was expected to form a formidable duo with Ruben Dias at the Etihad Stadium, but that role eventually returned to John Stones, back at his best.

Aymeric Laporte admits that life as a fallback option is not so appealing, as he prepares for Euro 2020 after choosing to defend the colors of Spain, tired of tirelessly waiting for a call from Didier The fields. And obviously, a departure this summer is clearly not to be excluded for the former Bilbao.

“When I played, I played really well”

Asked about his future by The Independent, after declaring his happiness at City in February, the France-born defender said: “The situation is very different now. I won’t say anything here, it’s something personal” . Aymeric Laporte has made 27 appearances for City in all competitions this season.

On his lack of regular playing time, he said: “It’s a very different challenge because I’ve never played less than this year. For me it’s very different, it’s hard to accept. I try to train every day like habit. I try to keep my rhythm and when I have to play, I try to do it as best I can. ”

“Personally I’m happy with what I’ve done this season. When I played I played really well. Of course you can always improve, but I’m happy with it all, and I hope be able to make a really good Euro, then we’ll see what can happen ” , finally declared the one who will wear the colors of La Roja this summer.
