As decision day looms for Marc Vivien Foe, the midfielder says he wants to end his playing career at Manchester City. Marc Vivien Foe should hear within the next few weeks if he is to be offered a contract with the Blues. The Cameroon international is on loan until the end of this season from French club Lyons and now faces an anxious wait with City having to make their minds up on the player’s future by 15th March.
The twenty-seven-year-old has been captivated by the loyalty of the City fans who, he says, have made him feel at home at a club which is building for a bright future.
“It is out of my hands but I would like to stay with Manchester City. I feel at home here. The important thing for me is the club and it’s supporters,” he said.
“The fans are really unbelievable I have never been anywhere where they are so loyal. It really hit home to me when we were losing by four goals to Arsenal and they kept cheering us on. That makes me want to win something for them.”
“Everything is in place at Manchester City for the club to grow into a force in English football. We have a great manager who has high ambitions and players who want to grow with each other and the club. Of course I would like to be part of that.”
The midfielder, who has notched up seven goals since his first for the club at the start of September, is hoping to hear good news from Kevin Keegan.
And he believes that if the opportunity is handed to him to stay his game will improve as the club goes from strength to strength.
“At the moment I do not know what is going to happen but I hope Kevin Keegan will come and say everything is okay that he wants me to stay.”
“I want to grow with this club, make my home here and end my career here. There is great potential even though we have been guilty of under achieving in recent games.”
“We have shown that we can compete with some of the best teams and if we can find a consistency of application and effort then we can be challengers.”
“The European dream may have ended and losing our last two games hasn’t helped but the championship isn’t over and whatever my future here I want to make sure that we win as many games as possible between now and the end of the season. We owe the fans and the manager and ourselves that.”
“We will have to play better than we did at Blackburn where we were slow to get started. We have to make sure we are switched on from the first whistle.”
“We are making it very difficult for ourselves because we always seem to be chasing the game. Once we get in front we are a different proposition.”
“We have the strike force in Nicolas Anelka and Robbie Fowler to worry teams and I know that as they start to get to know and understand each other better they will score lots of goals.”
