Gareth Barry: “I will play Champions League football at Manchester City”

Midfielder still won’t stop harping on about his top four dream


Gareth Barry made his Manchester City debut in South Africa last night, but marred the occasion by picking up a yellow card and earning a subsequent substitution in the 64th minute.

Speaking to Sky Sports after the game, the central midfielder spoke of his desire to play in the Champions League, which is, as we all know, the only reason he left Aston Villa:

“I have signed a five-year contract with City and I believe I will play Champions League football with them.”

Most Spoiler readers believe Manchester City will not finish in the top four in 2009/10, and we agree. However, we feel that the nouveau riche side will almost certainly reach the European promised land within the next five years. In fact, we’re confident they will do it in three.

Do you agree, or is Barry simply trying to justify his newly acquired remuneration package? Let us know your thoughts below…
