After an impressive debut season, £32 million Mangala looks the manin man at the heart of City’s defence.
Until recently Man City captain Vincent Kompany was generally thought of as the world’s best centre-back, while his defensive partner Martin Demichelis was widely mocked. But there has been a shift of power at the heart of City’s defence – and a new kid on the block. Eliaquim Mangala made more of an impression with referees than he did City fans when he first arrived (for an eye-watering £32 million) – racking up seven yellow cards and a red in his first 11 matches (all comps). But has emerged as City’s best defender. He collected more clean sheets (11) than Demichelis (9) and Kompany (7) and his goals conceded ratio (0.88 per game) also better (1.07 and 1). He has even cleaned up his act – seeing yellow just once in his final 20 matches of the season. The Mangala-Demechelis partnership coincided with City’s outstanding end of season form - six consecutive wins, including four clean sheets – and looks the pick of City’s defenders next term.
