City starlet plots Marseille downfall

Published Add your comment

Harry Bunn is hoping to add to his goalscoring account in the NextGen Series Group 1 tie against Marseille tonight.

The teenage striker was on target in the 2-1 defeat to Barcelona, the Citizens' only match in the competition thus far, and is hoping to follow in his father's footsteps by finding the net on a regular basis.

Bunn Snr holds the record for most goals in a League Cup game (six), and has been giving his son tips on how to keep on the goal trail.

"I always believe that every game I'm going to have at least one chance, so I aim to score from that chance. But it's the players around me who create the chances," said the youngster ahead of tonight's U19 fixture in France.

"My dad used to give me tips - we'd get DVDs of all my games and go through them. He was at the Barcelona game - I'm hoping he'll be able to get over on a cheap flight to Marseille.

"It's our first away trip in the competition and it should be good - we were unlucky against Barcelona and now we want to get the win to put us up there in the group. We felt we did well that night - they had a bit more possession than us but with the chances we created, we could have got something."


Reports in today's press claim a loan move could be in the offing, with Manchester City confirming on their official website that a number of clubs have sent scouts to keep an eye on the player's progress.

Jordi Hiwula and Devante Cole are two other youngsters who are hoping to get their chance to impress, but coach Andy Welsh admitted they currently have a tough task taking the starting spot off Bunn.

"They have to dislodge Harry - he's strong, direct, and playing very well, a goal-a-game man who can live with the pressure."
