07/08 Manchester City Players - Where are they now?

This is a list of all the Man City players who made a league appearance in the 2007/2008 Premier League season, prior to the big money takeover of Sheikh Mansour and the Abu Dhabi Group. I thought it'd be interesting to see where all of the players who are being replaced by 'big names' have ended up since the takeover.

Stephen Ireland - Aston Villa
Richard Dunne - Aston Villa
Martin Petrov - Bolton Wanderers
Vedran Ćorluka - Tottenham Hotspur
Kasper Schmeichel - Leeds United
Dietmar Hamann - Milton Keynes Dons
Ched Evans - Sheffield United
Daniel Sturridge - Chelsea
Paul Dickov - Oldham Athletic
Matthew Mills - Reading

Geovanni - San Jose Earthquakes

Emile Mpenza - Neftçi (Azerbaijan)

Rolando Bianchi - Torino
Javier Garrido - Lazio
Valeri Bojinov - Parma

Elano - Galatasaray

Sun Jihai - Shaanxi Chanba (China)

  1. think they should have kept ireland, dunne and maybe sturridge. the rest were kind of dead wood, yes some like elano, geovani and petrov had their moments but probably were't quite good enough to cut it
