Pantilimon enjoying City experience

Published Add your comment

Manchester City's second-choice goalkeeper Costel Pantilimon claims life is "getting better and better" at the club.

Pantilimon, signed on loan from Romanian side Poli Timisoara in the summer, impressed on a rare outing in Tuesday's Carling Cup quarter-final win at Arsenal. The 6ft 8in Romania international made fine saves from Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Park Chu-young as he kept City's first clean sheet in almost a month in the 1-0 victory.

The 24-year-old told City TV: "The manager made the choice and he brought me here. In training, with the coaches and goalkeepers, we do some very good stuff and they know what plans they choose. They have made a very good team. We are in first position and now we are in the semi-final. Things are getting better and better."
