Maicon relishing derby day

Published Add your comment

Manchester City defender Maicon has no doubt Sunday's clash with Manchester United will match any other derby he has experienced for atmosphere.

The Barclays Premier League contest at the Etihad Stadium will be the first meeting between local rivals City and United since Brazilian full-back Maicon joined the Blues from Inter Milan this summer. With it once again pitting the league's top two against each other the game is set to be as intense an affair as ever.

And Maicon, who has played in derbies for Inter against AC Milan and for Cruzeiro against their Belo Horizonte neighbours Atletico Mineiro in Brazil, said: "All over the world, the derby is a different game to any other. It is a passionate game, whether you are in Manchester, Milan or Brazil, and I am sure Sunday will be just the same."
