Ilkay Gundogan surprised to still being a Man City player

Ilkay Gundogan will be playing his sixth season for Manchester City.

The 30-year old midfielder has been at the club since 2016 and ended last season as the club’s top scorer.

He will be facing competition in his position with the signing of Jack Grealish from Aston Villa.

Pep Guardiola’s side has won the league three times in the last four years.

After having his best season with Man City last year, Gundogan admits he never expected to be a Cityzen at this stage of his career.

“I remember myself joining the club a few years ago, being on crutches after surgery that I had on my knee,” Gundogan said.

“That is five years in the past and now, five years later, I am still here. I am maybe a bit surprised that I am still here, but I feel very comfortable and very happy to be a part of this club and to be able to live in this city. The happiness is still the same, the excitement about everything is still the same, it just feels like the Premier League gets tougher and harder, more intense.”
