Caballero hints at Citizens departure

Manchester City goalkeeper Willy Caballero has admitted he could look to join another side in the Premier League due to a lack of regular playing time.

The 34-year-old has made just a handful of appearances for the Citizens since making the switch from Malaga in 2014, and gave fans a timely reminder of his quality after producing a match-winning performance in City’s victory over Liverpool in the Capital One Cup final at the weekend.

The Argentine is the second choice behind England international Joe Hart, and says he will continue to fight for a starting spot.

However, Caballero is aware of the fact that his first-team prospects are unlikely to improve and says he wants to stay in England should he part ways with the Citizens.

“I’m not thinking about moving back to Argentina,” Caballero is quoted as saying by The Sun.

“I’m enjoying my time here. I would like to keep playing here at Man City.

“But if I can’t play regularly for Man City, then I would like to play for another team here in the Premier League.

“It’s tough to be the second goalkeeper. But since I joined Man City I have been fighting for the spot.

“Hart has done so well. Nevertheless, I keep fighting because I want my spot.”
