Spanish newspaper Marca has demanded its readers ‘remember the name’ of Patrick Roberts after the winger’s latest performance for Girona in La Liga at the weekend.
As we told you last week, the on-loan Manchester City midfielder has been in brilliant form for the Catalan side in recent weeks and has been winning rave reviews for some of his showings in Spain’s top-flight.
And starting in Sunday’s 1-1 draw against a star-studded Atletico Madrid side, Roberts continued his excellent form, conjuring up a glittering display on the right-wing, in place of regular midfielder Portu, and has now started four consecutive La Liga matches after waiting several months for his first.
And now Marca, one of the country’s most respected sports publications, isn’t holding back, describing Roberts as a ‘marvel’ in an article headlined ‘A Devil’, and insisting its readers remember his name:

It seems any hope of luring Roberts back to Glasgow any time soon are remote, but what do you think?
