Life in Spain Hasn’t Started Very Well For Patrick Roberts

Life in Spain Hasn’t Started Very Well For Patrick Roberts

Life in Spain hasn’t started very well for Patrick Roberts.

The Manchester City winger is well known to fans of Celtic after spending two-and-a-half seasons on loan with the Parkhead club.

But he left them in the summer to take up a new opportunity with Girona in La Liga – a move which could have a big pay off for him given the quality of football in Spain.

Unfortunately for Roberts, though, he’s hardly played in the early stages of his stay in Spain and that must be worrying for him and City as he continues his development.

Roberts has been in eight match day squads for Girona since signing for them in August, facing the likes of Real Madrid, Barcelona and Villarreal already.

But the talented winger has managed a combined 67 minutes across all those games, failing to start at all and having to settle for a place off the bench or no involvement at all so far.

His latest appearance came against Eibar earlier today, with Girona losing 3-2 to drop down to 13th place in the La Liga table.

You’d be surprised if Roberts was happy playing a peripheral role at Girona and it’ll be interesting to see what happens with him moving forward.
