"I know Sturridge well, I have watched him many times," Mancini says. "It was strange because he started out in Manchester and someone let him out of the club for nothing. Given the chance I think I would have liked to have kept him, but now he is at Chelsea we can do nothing. I know for sure he was one of the best young players that was here. I asked him last year when he played for Bolton why he left Manchester City and he said he didn't know."


quote:

"If Sturridge was here today he would be playing in our first team," Mancini says. "This season he can arrive in the national team too. I understand the situation with young players, it is difficult for them to improve if they don't get the games they need, but it is better to send them on loan rather than lose them altogether."

Your youth system wouldn't have saved you this year. RVP has single-handedly saved United this year.

you mad?

or you are just missing the point that the United youth team has always produced 1st team players that make an impact at United or somewhere else while City and Chelsea not so much.

No, but let's be honest, most of the top teams in the world (Barça is an obvious exception) have more non-academy grads on their senior team than academy grads.

United has a successful academy and shoots out more youth players than City or Chelsea, but the stars are largely bought. It's just how it is in big money football.

City and Chelsea have enough cash that they could just buy other team's youngsters and players and make it work.

But City has really pumped the cash in the youth system recently. They can do it all with that money.
