Omroep Brabant today features an interview with Manchester City loanee Iker Pozo, who’s having a spell at FC Eindhoven.
The midfielder is managing to get some regular playing time in the Dutch second division, with 21 appearances so far, and claims to be glad he made the move.
Still, Pozo admits he first thought he’d be joining the biggest club in Eindhoven, and was only then informed about the existence of his current club.
“I thought about PSV Eindhoven, yes,” Pozo told Omroep Brabant.
“I know the top teams in the Netherlands, but not the clubs below them. But soon I realised that it was about FC Eindhoven and I was and still am very happy and happy with it.”
Pozo joined Manchester City in a move from Real Madrid back in 2012. He spent eight years at the club’s academy and never had the chance to play for the first team.
Only then he agreed the loan to the Netherlands.
“The option to go to the first, there was not. FC Eindhoven showed up quickly and they expressed a lot of confidence in me. They told me that I could become a decisive player and the feeling was right with me.”
Regarding his return to Manchester City, Pozo claims to be still faithful about his success at the club, even though he knows he won’t get many chances there.
“Of course I still want to succeed at Manchester City. But I don’t know if that is realistic now. I don’t know what my options are going to be for next season, so I can’t say much about that.”
