City starlet needs first-team break

Published Add your comment

Israel Under-21 coach Guy Luzon believes Manchester City youngster Gai Assulin needs more first-team opportunities if he is to progress.

The 20-year spearheaded an impressive Israel performance against England on Monday evening at Oakwell to catch the eye.

However, the 20-year-old is yet to make an appearance for City since his move from Barcelona, and Luzon thinks the talented midfielder needs more exposure to help develop his game.

"The squad at Manchester City contains all the stars from the world and I don't think a young player can play at Manchester City," he said.

"Tevez doesn't play at Manchester City. The squad at Manchester City is like the squad at Barcelona and it is very hard to play.


"I think when he plays it can show his quality. He has the quality to play in England.

"I would like to see him play. For me it doesn't matter where but he needs to play."

City have already loaned out a number of their out of favour first-team and reserve players this summer, and with the emergency loan market open on Thursday, Assulin can still recur a move away from the Etihad Stadium.

The likes of Dedryck Boyata, Vladimir Weiss and Ben Mee have all secured moves away, and given the success of Joe Hart following his loan spell, there's reason to believe the Israeli can become a pivotal part of the City set up upon his return.
