Willy Caballero didn’t enjoy the greatest of starts at Manchester City, similar to Claudio Bravo. The Argentine goalkeeper has offered some support to his fellow shot stopper, telling him it has got better at the club. Willy Caballero had numerous poor performances which resulted in some questioning of his abilities, but then a heroic performance against Liverpool in the Capital One Cup final changed everything.

Speaking to the official Manchester City website, Willy Caballero said:

“I tried to focus on the games but I listened and was aware of the criticism in my first year at City, but I learned and worked hard to improve throughout my second year.

“After the Capital One Cup final, everything changed and I felt a lot of affection from the City fans and I’ve really enjoyed it since.

“I speak with Claudio all the time and have given him all the advice I can about the Premier League – the players, the stadiums, the teams and how they play.

“I also told him that my first season here was difficult and not so happy, but because he plays most weeks, it will be different for him game by game.

“He needs to stay confident, work hard and I am sure we will all see the best of Claudio Bravo very soon.”
