The respect he deserves?? Going to the match and singing his name constantly for years. The club have been paying him handsomely for years. What other respect do you think he deserves?! A gold fuckin statue of him outside the ground?
The fact is last season he was overweight and lazy. You cannot argue against that. You look at him this season and there's a huge difference. Opposition players are bouncing off him again and he's putting in the effort.
He's a City legend. I don't know one single fan that would dispute that at all.
Lol. Saying "Fuck sake forgot we got left with this lazy lump!" is not exactly what most people would call giving a club legend the respect they deserve. You can't have his cake and eat it too. But maybe you were being sarcastic, who knows.
And the other huge difference is our manager who demands peak fitness from every player as a requirement for playing. So maybe, just maybe, Pep knows how to get the best out of Yaya.
