Man City defender CJ Egan-Riley happy with personal progress and first team chance


CJ Egan-Riley was pleased with his progress at Manchester City this past season.

Egan-Riley made three first-team appearances after making his debut in September and captained the Elite Development Squad (EDS) to the Premier League 2 title.

The 19-year-old defender was one of several youngsters to train regularly with Guardiola's side throughout the campaign.

Those sessions supplemented his playing time with Brian Barry-Murphy's EDS and he feels they have been an important part of his development.

“There are so many players [to learn from] and some of the best players in the world in every position," he said.

“For me to be able to train with them and try and learn little bit off them – I am just like a sponge trying to soak everything in and trying to get those little details of how I can improve my game.

“Obviously, I try and help the team out where I can in training or if I am asked to play five minutes, just to enjoy moments like this when we win the league, which is what we all do it for."
