Petrov hits back at City

By | 2nd July 2010

New Bolton signing Martin Petrov has hit back at his old club, Manchester City. The Bulgarian international became a forgotten man at the City of Manchester Stadium during his final season there, and couldn’t hold his tongue back before launching a scathing attack on the Citizens.

Petrov’s main argument revolves around the fact that he was largely ignored at Manchester City. The midfielder suffered from injuries for a large part of the last Premier League season, and he claims that his teammates and the club’s officials didn’t even make an effort to talk to him.

Petrov said: “If you have played at the top level and have a good name, if you have played for your country, then the communication must be better for someone who is 31 years old.

“I am not an 18-year-old boy. It was the first time in my career when I have not played and the communication with me was so bad. No one spoke with me.

“The only person I want to thank at City is the physio and not the other guys.

“I want to make that clear. I spent the last two months with the physio getting myself right.

“Man City have spent big and I know it is difficult to play. The first year at City was very positive.

“They gave me a chance to play in the Premier League but the last two years were very difficult and a lot of money was spent.”

Petrov now starts a new chapter in his career at Bolton after turning down potential moves to West Ham, Stoke, and Everton.
