Manchester City’s Patrick Roberts: I Loved Steven Gerrard… But I Adore Lionel Messi

Manchester City’s Patrick Roberts: I Loved Steven Gerrard… But I Adore Lionel Messi

We’ve been given a little bit of an insight into the background of Manchester City winger Patrick Roberts today.

The highly-rated 18-year-old winger – who signed from Championship side Fulham in the summer – was quizzed on his football firsts by City’s official YouTube page.

Roberts, who has also been capped for England at under-19s level, reveals some interesting facts about himself – including the first football shirt he ever wore and first game he ever attended.

The youngster explains how growing up with Scouse parents led to him wearing a Liverpool strip at a young age.

The former Craven Cottage kid also tells how the first football song he can remember singing is the iconic Liverpool anthem – You’ll Never Walk Alone.

Roberts grew up idolising former Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard – but insists now that he ADORES Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi.

You can check out the rest of the interview in the video below.

City return to Premier League action this weekend when they take on Norwich at the Etihad on Saturday.
