At the time, the city had its fair share of cult heroes, including Richard Dunne and Elano, and a young 21-year-old Greek striker, Georgios Samaras, was about to join them. “I felt the conversations with them were so positive, and at that stage in my career, I felt like what they had planned for their immediate future really matched what I wanted to achieve,” Samaras admitted when speaking exclusively to Ladbrokes Fanzone. “We also treat our community members to competitions, special offers, promotions, and adverts from us and our partners.

Let’s be honest, Man City, at that point, were a mid-table club. *Do you remember Georgios Samaras’ spell with Manchester City? I was a national player who was trying to keep his position, so I had to consider that, and I just liked what was presented to me at City.”

“I felt no pressure at all in the first 18 months with Man City, to be honest with you,” he admitted, adding the biggest challenge was working under three boards during his time in the blue half of the city. Over that period Samaras made 64 appearances for City, netting 12 goals. However, his second spell in England was largely underwhelming, failing to find the net in eight appearances.

The Greek star, now 39, hung up his boots in 2018 after a spell with Turkish side Samsunspor.
