Man City chief Txiki: Claudio Bravo preparing for managementby Paul Vegas13 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveManchester City director of football Txiki Begiristain says Claudio Bravo could yet stay next season.Bravo is approaching the final six months of his contract with the club and the Blues have brought in a number of goalkeepers since that will be looking to push Ederson for a place in the team; Zack Steffen and Aro Muric are both on season-long loans at Fortuna Dusseldorf and Nottingham Forest respectively. “We need a little time to confirm what we are seeing,” Txiki told El Mercurio. “We must remember that he’s been injured for a year and this is not seen in one or two months. After that time, we will make a joint decision, which depends on the two parties, because this is our decision and then his, but I want to make it clear that there is nothing settled. To this day, we are delighted with him.”He added: “He’s preparing for the future. He could have gone to another club to play every game. Here he is taking all experience, collecting everything he has lived, especially in Barcelona and Manchester, to become a great manager.” TagsTransfersAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say

Huge 66 yard TD from Eason to McKenzie. #UGA 20 – Nicholls 14 in 3Q. pic.twitter.com/tPCpYH160I— Jake Reuse (@ReuseRecruiting) September 10, 2016On the second play of Nicholls’ ensuing drive, Devin Powell forced a fumble with a sack of Aaron Davis, which was returned by Lorenzo Carter 24 yards for a score.Georgia fans should feel a little more comfortable up 12, but this is clearly not the performance many expected after last week’s big win over North Carolina. Nicholls has the ball, as we enter the fourth quarter in Athens.
